SHANNON, Ireland (May 22, 2011) -- Paul Cutler (Portstewart) held his nerve to clinch the title at the Irish Amateur Close Championship sponsored by Golfsure at Shannon in a dramatic final day shootout. A final round of 71 gave Cutler the title by two shots from Aaron Kearney (Castlerock) and Pat Murray (Limerick). Murray and Kearney, who started the final round tied with Cutler and Muskerry's Niall Gorey, had both found the par-five 18th in two and needed to convert their eagle putts to post a target of three over, but both grazed the hole. That left Cutler needing a par to win the title, but he showed true pedigree by getting up and down for birdie to win by two shots.
