Robert Moran wins at Lough Erne to secure place in Faldo Series Grand Final

April 7, 2017

Robert Moran (Castle) won the 2017 Faldo Series Ireland Championship

Robert Moran produced the best round of the day to win the Faldo Series Ireland at Lough Erne Resort by a single shot.
The Castle GC member fired an excellent final round of 69 – four shots better than any other player on the day – to book his ticket to the illustrious Faldo Series Grand Final.
The competitors battled tough windy conditions at the famed Faldo Course. Two brilliant rounds from the top two players aside, every other golfer posted 72 or over.
Moran was off the pace on day one but he hung in until he finally overhauled David Kitt (Athenry) on the 16th hole of the final day.
Kitt can count himself incredibly unfortunate not to make the Faldo Series Grand Final. His opening round of 68 was an exhilarating exhibition of golf but his fellow Under-18 competitor Moran was also in sublime form.
Rory Williamson (Holywood) came to Lough Erne as the defending Champion. Although unable to defend his title, he won the Under-21 section by three shots.
He was also only two shots behind the overall victor. A sumptuous eagle on the difficult ninth hole was the highlight of the day for Williamson who will go to his second Grand Final in September.
Emma Forbes (Royal Portrush) will line up in her first Grand Final after winning the Under-21 Girls’ section.
Forbes overcame some shaky moments to claim a one-shot victory over Gemma McCarthy (Clonmel). McCarthy finished well but had to eventually settle for runner-up.
Anna Foster (Elm Park) edged out Ella Hammond-Baveystock (Wentworth) to win the Girls’ Under-16 category by one shot. Foster birdied the 17th to seal the win and will head to her first Faldo Series Grand Final.

Williamson to defend Faldo Series Ireland title at Lough Erne Resort

March 27, 2017


The new Faldo Series season begins at the stunning Lough Erne Resort on April 3-4.
Lough Erne will welcome a field brimming with talent for the tenth Faldo Series Ireland Championship with places in the 21st Faldo Series Grand Final awaiting the age group winners.
Competitors aged 12 to 21 still have an opportunity to enter the Faldo Series Ireland Championship.
Any entrants will be wary of defending champion, Holywood’s Rory Williamson, whose mastery of the conditions in his final round was decisive in winning the tournament in 2016.
Irishmen Paddy Culhane and Eoin Murphy have shown form in the Faldo Series and will look to depose Williamson to take the glory for themselves.
Around 90 golfers will line up in the tenth Ireland Championship, to be played over two rounds on the Faldo Course at Lough Erne.
The field will be divided into five age-groups – three for boys and two for girls – and the winners of each division will again join Faldo at the season-ending 21st Faldo Series Grand Final, a 54-hole World Amateur Golf Ranking event.
Today, 40 Faldo Series tournaments take place in 30-plus countries worldwide, touching thousands of golfers each year.
Past winners include Major Champions Tseng Ya-ni and Rory McIlroy, who took his tally of professional Major titles to four with his wins at the 2014 Open Championship and US PGA Championship.
