High Drama in Irish Girls Open Strokeplay Championship

Mehaffey wins playoff to complete Irish Girls Open hat-trick

Overnight leader, Isabella Holpfer (Austria) was two shots clear of her closest competitors going in to the final round. However, two bogeys and a double bogey on the front nine cost the Austrian player her leading position.  Low scores prevailed from the chasing pack as Olivia Mehaffey (Royal County Down Ladies) shot level par 71 to take the clubhouse lead for a mere moment. 

Samantha Fuller (England) was in full form as she made her only birdie of the day on 18, holing a 10 foot putt to card a one over par 72 and find herself in a sudden death playoff.

Olivia and Samantha resumed play a short time later on the par 3, 9th hole where both players carded pars. Adrenalin was pumping as Olivia overshot the long par 5, 10th in two but chipped dead to inside two feet to secure her birdie 4. She is crowned the Irish Girls Open Champion for the third consecutive year.

The International Team Event was dominated by Sweden (Beatrice Wallin, Linn Grant and Els Lundquist) as they finished on a total of 441, one shot clear of both England and Scotland (442). The Irish team carded a combined total of 445.
