Greenberg Wins Irish Student Title

Tandragee’s Stefan Greenberg blitzed the back nine in Bray to clinch his first championship, the Irish Students Amateur Open in Bray, by a single stroke.

Home in four-under 32, Greenberg edged past a spirited challenge from Maynooth’s Ronan Mullarney.

When the Galway man rolled in a 30-foot birdie putt on the 18th for a closing 67 to post a five-under clubhouse target of 205, he led Greenberg by one, but the Tandragee man replied with an eagle three at the 15th to take a one-shot lead.

After calmly negotiating the 16th and 17th in pars, Greenberg needed a par five at the last, and he duly delivered, finding the putting surface in three and two-putting, holing a nerve-testing three-footer to secure victory.
