Moynihan set for second Walker Cup thanks to Royal Dublin triumph

He won by three shots in the end but it there was a world of emotion bookended between the 400-yard drive and a six-foot putt that topped and tailed Gavin Moynihan’s second Irish Amateur Open victory in the space of four years.

The course record 65 he posted on Saturday to snatch a share of the 54-hole lead with fellow clubman LeBlanc and move four clear of the field on six under par, was clearly one of the keys to his win.

But Moynihan preferred to point to the 76 he shot in the worst of the Friday afternoon wind and rain, when he was seven over par through 10 holes but refused to give up.

LeBlanc, who was just two behind Moynihan standing on the 18th tee, four putted from 30 yards having come up just short of the green. 

If LeBlanc is one for the future, Moynihan is clearly one of the men of the moment and his experience proved key in the end as he birdied the first and second to go one clear, edge two ahead through the turn and kept his rival at arms length as they battled home against the wind.
