Gary Murphy blew his chance of a top 10 cheque with a horror finish in the Madeira Islands Open.

The KIlkenny pro, 34, crashed from 13th overnight to 43rd after carding three bogeys, two double bogeys and an eagle in a closing 77.

Murphy finished on level par - a massive 18 shots behind runaway winner Daniel Vancsik of Argentina.

Vancsik hit a 68 to win by seven shots from David Frost and Santiago Luna with Waterville's David Higgins in 54th place after a 73.
