Three handicapper Brendan O'Malley continued his good form with a victory in the Rabo Direct sponsored Hilary Golf Society outing at Laytown and Bettystown.

Fresh from his victory in the IPGA Tankard in Royal Dublin on Saturday, O'Malley shot a 69 to beat Clem Walshe (5) from Dundalk by virtue of a superior back 9.

Jonathan Yates from Naas, playing off plus two, won the gross prize with a fine level par score of 70.

The team winners with an impressive score of 57 were Greg Cooke (St. Anne's), Daragh Curran (The Links Portmarnock) and David Foley (Royal Dublin).

The next outing takes place on Sunday March 22nd at Co. Louth.
