David Carey gave his confidence another small boost when he outscored star European Tour rookie Paul Dunne by one to win the gross in the final Tuesday Winter Series outing of the season at Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links.

The 19-year old rom Castleknock, who is third in the Alps Tour money list, posted a three under 68 to take the top prize with Dunne, who didn't make the field for this week's True Thailand Classic, carding a 69 and Courtown amateur Ross Steedman a 70.

Craddockstown's Lee McMillan, playing off  one, took the nett by one from Kinsale's Cathal Butler following a fine 68 with Dun Laoghaire's Ted Collins third on 70.
