LAHINCH, Ireland — Stuart Grehan doubled his win total for the 2015 year, capturing the South of Ireland Amateur on Sunday with a 4-and-3 victory over Colin Fairweather.

Grehan, the 22-year-old from Tullamore, was victorious at the East of Ireland Amateur in early June during a rain-shortened event. The tournament was cut to 54 holes for the first time in 75 years, with Grehan winning after posting scores of 67-69-76.

This time, in a match play event, Grehan came out on top again. His semifinal match with Mark MacGrath, in which he won 2-and-1, sent him to the final where he bested Fairweather in persistent rain.

“Winning two championships was on my dream list for this year,” Grehan told the Irish Examiner.
