It was the battle of the Alan’s at Lough Erne on Tuesday as Condren got the better of Doherty to win the Ulster Senior Men’s Amateur Open Championship.

Both players could not be separated on five-under-par after 36 holes and it was Condren who was the last man standing after a playoff.

The Greystones man carded rounds of 71 and 68 while Doherty of Corrstown shot up the leaderboard after a low round of the week 67 in round two after an opening level-par 72.


Condren got off to a hot start with three opening birdies before a fourth birdie on the ninth saw him turn in 33.

A bogey on 12 was cancelled out by a birdie on 16 as he joined Doherty in the clubhouse after he had set the club house target.

Doherty carded four birdies on his way home including two in his last three holes to get into the clubhouse on -5.

Galway Bay’s Eeddie McCormack was two shots further back after rounds of 71 and 70 while Jody Fanagan and overnight leader Mark Duffy rounded off the top-5 on two-under-par.
