HARLECH, WALES (May 22, 2016) - On the final day of the Welsh Amateur Open Barry Hume took care of business and won the title and added another victory to his impressive amateur career tally. Hume, one of five players to hold the Scottish Amateur and Scottish Stroke Play titles at the same time, finished the 36-hole final day two-strokes clear of the field at 8-under.

Playing at the par-69 Royal St. Davids Golf Club, Hume put together rounds of 67-66-66-69. Hume was under-par in each of the first three rounds before closing with an even-par final round. The Scotsman had a shaky start to his final round and he was 2-over after the first three holes. Hume, who has played in two Open Championships, was still 2-over for his final round after 10 holes but he was able to turn things around down the stretch.

On No. 11 Hume rolled in a birdie and then he knocked in another on the 16th. Hume, then closed with back-to-back pars allowing him to shut the door on fellow Scotsman Craig Howie, who finished 6-under and in second place.
