Douglas golfer Peter O’Keeffe has been crowned the 2021 Bridgestone Men’s Order of Merit winner.

Following wins at the AIG Irish Men’s Amateur Close Championship, the Munster Stroke Play Championship and the Flogas Irish Men’s Amateur Open Championship, the Cork golfer unsurprisingly ended the season at the top of the standings.

An excellent third place finish at the Flogas Irish Men’s Amateur Open Championship saw West of Ireland Men’s Open champion Hugh Foley (Royal Dublin) leap into second place in the standings behind O’Keeffe. South of Ireland Amateur Open champion TJ Ford completed the top-three after an excellent 2021 for the Co. Sligo golfer.

Long-time leader Alex Maguire finished the season in fourth place. The Laytown and Bettystown golfer enjoyed a tremendous season with wins in Royal Portrush at the North of Ireland Men’s Amateur Open, and the Connacht Men’s Stroke Play in Portumna.

Allan Hill was the only player to move into the top ten after the Flogas Irish Men’s Amateur Open Championship. The Athenry golfer finished the season in seventh place after an excellent fifth place finish at The European Club.
