Awesome Dawson survives Close call

Winner Robin Dawson drives from the 10th tee during the final round of the 2013 Irish Boys Amateur Open Championship at Lisburn Golf Glub. Picture by Pat Cashman Faithlegg’s Robin Dawson recovered from a 72nd hole nightmare reminiscent of Padraig Harrington’s at Carnoustie to win the Irish Boys Amateur Open Championship after a dramatic three-hole playoff with England’s Marco Penge at Lisburn.

Dawson had a two-shot lead playing the par-three 18th, but took three putts from 10 feet for a double bogey.

However, he regained his composure quickly, holing from 15 feet on the 16th - the first playoff hole - for a birdie three.

Penge made par and after both parred the 17th, Dawson’s supporters must have thought he was home and dry after a beautiful three-iron to 10 feet at the 18th - the scene of his original nightmare.

Hoever, Penge hit his tee shot to 25 feet and followed it wiuth a hit an immaculate putt that looked in all the way but cruelly lipped out, leaving the Faithlegg man two putts for the win, which he duly took.
