Ryan secures top 10 as Higgins takes the win

David Higgins Irish Club ProThere was an air of familiarity today as David Higgins clocked up another win, this time it was a play-off win over Michael McDermott to secure the Irish Club Professional Tournament.  Higgins was the only golfer in the field to break par and his one under par 70 was enough to stake a share of 1st place.  Dunmurry Springs was the venue and it took two tie holes to separate the pair.  Higgins needed a good up an down to save par at the first, but he hit the green in regulation on the second when McDermott found water.

David Ryan added a second round 75 to his opening 72.  He finished on +4, tied for 5th placce with Colm Moriarty (Drive Golf Performance) and Richard Kilpatrick (Banbridge).

Davey Barry fell back to 22nd place, he finished with a disappointing 81 today, the Douglas trainee did finish in the money and he’ll look to better days in the long season ahead.  Davey is back in action next week at The Ruddy Cup which takes place at Pat Ruddy’s European Club.

Ryan and Higgins are back in action on Friday at the Foxrock Pro-Am.
