Figueiredo wins Irish Amateur Open Championship

Portuguese teenager Pedro Figueiredo cruised to an impressive seven-shot victory in the AIB Irish Amateur Open at Royal Dublin today.

Portuguese teenager Pedro Figueiredo cruised to an impressive seven-shot victory in the AIB Irish Amateur Open at Royal Dublin today.

Two clear of Ireland's Connor Doran after 54-holes, the 16-year-old from Lisbon closed with six birdies in an impressive 68 to finish on 10-under par.

Banbridge man Doran carded a final round 73 to share of second place with Scotland's Keir McNicholl and England’s Billy Hemstock on three-under par.

"I am really delighted with this victory," Figueiredo said. "It is a very big tournament and I am very proud of what I did this week and the way I played.

“My distance control was very good and I had lots of birdies from three or four feet. My short game was good as were all parts of my game. That is the only way you can win."

In February, Figueiredo clinched his first major international victory at the Portuguese Amateur Open and went on to make the cut in the European Tour's Madeira Islands Open and Portuguese Open.

Royal Dublin’s Niall Kearney finished fifth on two-under par after Sunday rounds of 71 and 70 but Irish champion Shane Lowry had to settle for a share of sixth place with Holland’s Floris de Vries after a closing 73.
