1. Flogas Irish Amateur Open Championship
Home favourite Robin Dawson (-2) completed a wire to wire victory in the Irish Amateur Open played at the magnificent Royal County Down G.C. An impressive first 54 holes, including a best of the week 65 on the opening day, saw Robin head into the final round with a 6 shot lead. He was to need the buffer after a double bogey on 9, a bogey on 14 and a triple bogey on 15 gave the chasing pack some encouragement. However, in the end none of them could get to the Tramore man who won by 4 shots despite a 77.

John Gough (ENG) and Alex Gleeson (IRE), who finished with a 70 and 71 respectively tied for 2nd on +2. Alex Fitzpatrick (ENG) was one shot further back on +3 after a final round 76. Results (20/05/18)

2. France v. England Men’s International Match
After a tight first day England narrowly led France 6.5 – 5.5 at Vidauban G.C. near St. Tropez. With afternoon rain forecast on Day 2 the decision was taken to cancel the Foursomes and ensure the Singles were completed. A great team performance saw England win this series 6.5 – 1.5 and therefore run out 13 – 7 winners. Well done to the England team and in particular Ben Jones and David Hague who were both unbeaten in all three of their matches. Results (13/05/18)
