Bangor's McGimpsey wins Irish Seniors Amateur Close Championship
24th July2011

Garth McGimpsey (Bangor) coasted home to take the Irish Seniors Amateur Close title in Thurles by six shots after carding a final round of level-par 72.

The former Walker Cup captain had led by four shots going into the final round and after a front nine of one-under 35, he never looked back.

Defending champion Maurice Kelly (Killeen) made a spirited defence of his title, and a birdie at the final hole saw him take the runner-up spot by a shot from Portmarnock's Adrian Morrow.

Connacht Seniors champion Nigel Duke clinched the over-60s prize with a final round 75, while Tipperary's John O'Donoghue won the O-65 category and Blainroe's Alistair Smith was the victor in the O-70 category.
