Heartbreak for Waterford’s Gary Hurley

Krietemeijer wins Spanish Amateur in dramatic finish

Gary Hurley looked certain to join some of the legends of world golf only to have the Spanish Amateur Championship cruelly snatched from his grasp on the final hole of a heart-stopping 36-hole decider at Sherry Golf in Jeréz.

The 22-year old from West Waterford and Maynooth University was two up with three to play but Jeroen Krietemeijer of the Netherlands birdied the 16th and then spectacularly eagled the 17th to draw level before taking the title with a par four at the difficult closing hole.

Hurley had driven into sand off the 18th tee and had to lay up. But with Krietemeijer just 30 feet away in two having taken a dangerous line down the right and avoided the water, Hurley hit a poor third from around 80 yards to 30 feet.

After failing to hole for par, he could only look on as the 21-year old Dutchman two-putted for a dramatic victory that proved that his share of 59th place in the KLM Open on the European Tour last year was no fluke.
