The beauty of Open Championship golf and links golf for that matter is that it demands a variety of shots scarcely seen across the weekly haunts of the PGA and European Tours. Here's two great examples

Open Championship – Top-10 Greatest Hits – #6

Who could forget the image of Jordan Spieth way right, deep into the dunes, faced with an unplayable lie, his procession towards a first Open Championship in serious jeopardy

Seapoint’s Dylan Keating calmly closed out a most impressive Munster Boys Amateur Open Championship win on Friday at the spectacular Ballybunion.

The Irish Boys international went into the final round with a whopping seven stroke lead and like an experienced professional, the youngster ensured the chasing pack would have to do something special to have any chance of grinding him down.

Keating lit up the Kingdom with an outrageous score of 65 in round two, allowing him the freedom to make some mistakes on the way home with plenty of shots in hand to take the title.

He picked up where he left off on Thursday to be out in three-under and it was looking like a procession for much of the final round before three bogeys to the clubhouse, threatened to make things interesting.

In the end, however, the Dubliner breezed home, signing for 72 and completing a wonderful five stroke win at level par for the 54-hole tournament.

In fairness to the chasing pack, there were some admirable efforts put in on the final day with Edmonstown’s Liam Abom firing five birdies in a three-under par round of 69 to take second alongside Roscommon’s Thomas Higgins who carded five birdies of his own in a great round of 70.

Another Roscommon youngster, Simon Walker fired a bogey-free four-under par round of 68 to snatch outright 4th at six-over while Killiney’s Cian O’Sullivan returned a haul that included seven birdies in a 68 of his own to tie for 5th alongside Connemara’s Luke O’Neill (79,73, 72) at plus-eight for the Championship.
