One-handicapper Conor Glynn has booked a return trip to Lough Erne after winning the Boys’ Under-18 event and the overall title at the Faldo Series Ireland Championship over the Faldo Course.
Glynn posted rounds of 70 and 78 in tough conditions to finish five shots ahead of Cian Geraghty, and to progress to his second successive Faldo Series Grand Final.
He will be joined by Boys’ Under-21 winner, Bangor’s Patrick Small, Boy’s Under-16 winner, Kieran Lynch from Skibbereen & West Carberry and Girls’ Under-16 winner, Chloe Ryan from Castleroy.
All four will return to the Lough Erne Resort, the Home of the Faldo Series Europe, for the 2010 Grand Final on September 21-23 where they will compete against all the age group winners from the other 15 events on this year’s Faldo Series Europe schedule.
“I am really happy to win,” said Glynn.”I went to Brazil last year for the Grand Final and it was a great experience to see the country, to play with good golfers and to meet new friends.
“The course is amazing and it going to be great to get the chance to meet Sir Nick Faldo again.”
Meanwhile, Small, recovered from dropping seven shots during the first nine holes of his second round to shoot 36 on the back nine and close with an 80, enough for a three-shot victory over Omagh’s Nial Kearns.
Elsewhere, Lynch closed with an impressive one-over-par 71 in the Boys’ Under-16 event to secure a five-shot victory over Banbridge’s Luke Woods, and Ryan, from Castleroy, claimed the Girls’ Under-16 prize after two rounds of 79 saw her finish two shots ahead of Olivia Mehaffey.
