Kyle McCarron (North West) clinched the Irish Youths Amateur Close Championship at Ardglass thanks to - fittingly - the only sub-par round on another testing day.
McCarron’s final two rounds of 72 and 69 were enough for a one-shot victory over Castlerock’s Andrew Mulholland, with Esker Hill’s Alan Lowry in third place.
Meanwhile, Warrenpoint’s Tara Gribben beat Lurgan’s Niamh Ward 4&3 to win the Ulster Women’s Championship at her home course.
