As Shane Lowry celebrated a hole-in-one on the par 3 16th hole at Augusta in the final round of the Masters, his cousin David Lowry was celebrating a win in the latest Hilary Golf Society at a very windy Portmarnock on Sunday.

Lowry, playing off a handicap of one out of Corballis, started with double bogey but bounced back brilliantly with five birdies on the way to a winning score of nett 75, all in winds of 40mph.

Second two shots back was Corrstown’s Alan Doherty (2) with 77, while The Royal Dublin’s Paddy Walshe (6) was third with 80. The Island’s Fergal Kennedy (1) won the gross with 79.

The Hilary season finishes next Friday at Royal Dublin.
