Paul McCarthy made it two from two for Mallow Golf Club when he captured the Munster Youths Trophy today in Tralee Golf Club.  He followed in the footsteps of his Fred Daly and Junior Foursomes team mate James Sugrue in capturing the prestigious title.  The 20 year old was competing in the tournament for the final time and he was two shots behind Bray’s Alan Fahy an Dun Laoghaire’s Conor Ryan going in to the final round.  A solid level par 70 was enough to move him clear of the field.  It wasn’t plain sailing however on the testing links.  McCarthy was three over after 10 but he added birdies at 12, 14 and 16 to rebuild his challenge and secure his winning total of 215 for the three rounds.  Kinsale golfers Cathal Butler and Gary Ward both finished on 225, just outside the top ten.  Youghal’s Conor Coyne was just outside the top twenty.
