Dyson Wins Irish Open

Simon Dyson yesterday won the Irish Open beating Richard Green by one shot.

Green had a long putt to win the championship on the 18th but bogied the hole which gave the tournament (his fifth European Tour victory) to Dyson on 15 under.

Scotland’s Stephen Gallacher holed a huge putt for birdie on the last which gave him a respectable third place finish.

David Howell, joint leader going into the final day with Dyson and Green, disappointed with a 73 on the Killarney course.

Peter Lawrie was Ireland’s best-placed golfer on nine under while Irish amateur Paul Cutler will be pleased with his week’s work, finishing on five under.

Dyson had just three bogeys all week and his win earns him a place in this week’s Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio.
