Paul Dunne Sinks Ten-Foot Put As Ireland Claim Golf Sixes Title

Ireland defeated France on Sunday’s Golf Sixes final on Sunday to claim the title for the very first time.

The Irish pairing of Gavin Moynihan and Paul Dunne saw off the threat of France in the European Tour event at St. Alban’s, succeeding last year’s winners Denmark in what is still a relatively new and somewhat experimental tournament.

It was Dunne whose shot won the day for Ireland, sinking a putt from ten feet at the fifth hole to seal the 2-0 victory for the duo.

In their first interview after winning the prize, worth around €100,000 to each of the two men, Moynihan and Dunne said that while the even in itself is designed to be a fun one, representing Ireland in any event makes it that bit more serious:

“It’s a fun event but when you have that tricoulour next to your name, it becomes that bit more serious. We’re happy to represent Ireland well, and it sets up well to kick on for the rest of the season.”

Ireland defeated England women in the weekend’s quarter final before defeating Korea in a playoff in Sunday’s semi-final on their way to the title.
