Alan Mew led from pillar to post as he became the second consecutive English winner of the Irish Seniors Open at Belvoir Park.​

The 66-year old from Stoneham Golf Club was the only player to break par for the week as he skated to a three-stroke win at a three-under par total after closing out with a one-over par 72.

In 2014, he was runner-up when Portmarnock’s Adrian Morrow triumphed at Waterville but this was Mew’s time, who succeeds English compatriot, Trevor Foster as champion.


Welsh runner-up, Nigel Evans was only ever able to get within three as the overnight leader maintained his composure to secure a deserved win having fired the low round of the week – a superb 65 – on the opening day.

Calcot Park’s George Wilson was the best of the Irish challenge in a share of third at three-over par after compiling rounds of 75, 70 & 71 for the 54-hole tournament.

Castlemartyr’s John O’Brien was one shot further back in a tie for sixth at plus-four while Westport’s Liam Halpin and Royal Curragh’s Alan Egan were the only other Irish players inside the top-10 after sharing ninth at plus-six.

The age category prizes went to Nigel Evans (60-64), Greystones’ Barry O’Leary (65-69) and Welshman Glynn Rees (70-plus).
