Lorna McClymont wins Flogas Irish Women’s Amateur Open
Scotland's Lorna McClymont proved it's not how you start but how you finish, as the 20-year-old overcame a double bogey on the first hole and birdied her last three to win the 2022 Flogas Irish Women’s Amateur Open Championship on Sunday at County Louth Golf Club.

The double-bogey on the first was McClymont's only blemish of the day, as the Scot went on to card six birdies of the day carded a final round of 4-under 70 on the par 74 County Louth Golf Club layout.

McClymont, who was the only player with three under par rounds (73-70-70) over the three days links golf course located in the village of Baltray, finished at 9-under for the 54-hole tournament, which was good for a four-stroke victory over Ireland's Katie Poots.

Poots began the day just two shots behind McClymont heading into the final round, found herself tied for the lead after making an eagle on the par-5 ninth hole, but she was unable to cash in on her birdie chances on her inward nine as she finished with nine straight pars.

McClymont regained the lead with a birdie on 11 and then finished off the championship by reeling off birdies on 16, 17 and 18 to secure a four-shot victory.

Despite the poor start, McClymont told the Irish Examiner it helped ease the early round nerves.

“It took the pressure off me. I felt everything was fine, and it was all about making birdies for the rest of the round. “It's an amazing achievement. I'm delighted I was able to keep it up for the three rounds.” McClymont is the first Scottish player to win the title since Hannah McCook was victorious in 2018.
