ARDEE, IRE (May 20, 2016) - Cork's Tom Cleary won
the Irish Seniors Amateur Open Championship at Ardee
Golf Club today, his first ever national title.
A former East of Ireland champion, Cleary (62)
two strokes clear of Arthur Pierse (Tipperary) on a 54
hole total of 221 (+8).
Conditions in Ardee proved testing as only one sub-
round was recorded over the whole championship, that
by Pierse in his final round as he attempted to chase
down his countryman.
"I'm very happy to win it. It's my first big one, I'm
delighted to win, delighted." beamed Cleary
immediately after signing his card.
Cleary's club mate from Cork Peter Cowley was
celebrating as his picked up the Over 70's prize, while
Hugh Smyth from Mourne won the Over 65's. Scotland's
Ian Brotherston claimed the Over 60's award.
