Michael Hoey is playing life’s long game

On the face of it, Michael Hoey’s decision to swap his yardage book for a rule book and take up a role as a DP World Tour referee might surprise a few people. By his own meticulously high standards, the Northern Irishman even impressed himself at times with his play...

Adam Fahey (Seapoint) and Sean Deasy (Douglas) have won the Irish Under-14 and Under-16 Boys’ Open Championships at Lucan GC.

Fahey came from a shot back to finish on +6, three clear of Elm Park’s Freddie Bracken, with overnight leader David Lyttle (Castlerock) finishing in third on +11.

Fahey missed out by a shot in last year’s Irish Under-14 Boys’ Open, but was delighted to get over the line on Friday afternoon.

“It’s a great feeling. I was close last year in Longford. It’s great to get over the line today though.

“I tried to play as solid as I could today and not focus on what Freddie or David were doing. I tried to play with the least amount of mistakes possible today. Last year I had one bad hole and it cost me the tournament. It was all about getting as many birdies and pars today.”

Douglas’ Sean Deasy impressed on the back-nine to defeat Royal Belfast’s Finlay Eager by three, finishing on -7. Deasy’s clubmate Jack Murphy finished in third on -3.

Eager started the day three clear, but a brilliant closing stretch from Deasy that included birdies on 11, 14, 16 and 17 saw him win the title.

“I’m delighted to have three under par rounds. I played solidly the whole week, thankfully.

“It was all about trying to get a few shots back on Finlay throughout the day. It felt like a Match Play situation today.”
