Fionn Hickey

Fionn Hickey finished strongly in Donegal today to claim second place in the Ulster Boys Open Championship.  After opening rounds of 72 & 73 the Muskerry man was -1 and held 4th place overnight.  In tough scoring conditions, Hickey found himself four over after six holes, but two birdies steadied the score.   A final bogey on the 16th would see him sign for a 76, but that ended being the third best score of the day with nobody able to break par.  Dundalk’s Josh Macklin shot a 74 to win while overnight leader Joshua Hill finished fourth.  Robert Walsh(Kinsale) finished tied for 17th while Jack Egan (Muskerry) and Keelan McCarthy (Lee Valley) were further down the field.
