Sean Calvert and Alex King were winners in Cobh today at the Munster Under 17 & Under 15 Close Championship.  Calvert from Ballyneety shot a six over par 68 in testing conditions that saw all golfers compete with showers and gusts in Marino.  An all important birdie on the 16th proved crucial as Calvert finished one shot ahead of Rory Fives (Faithlegg) and Cal Connolly (Lahinch). 

In the Under 15 Close Championship, Alex King had a blistering back nine to claim his second Munster title.  The Faithlegg member had 32 strokes for his second nine, thanks to four birdies.  He finished on three under (69) to win by two.  Charlie Flavin (Youghal) was second with 71 and Morgan O’Sullivan (Ballyneety) was third with 72.  Louis Galvin O’Carroll won the Best Under 14 prize.​
