Rosslare's John Brady captured his third title of the year with a stunning six-shot win over the in form Mark Power in the Irish Boys Under 16 Championship at Clonmel.

Two clear overnight, the 16-year old made four birdies and three bogeys in a one under 70 to win on nine under par 204 as Power shot a 74.

“I knew I was capable of winning,” Brady told the GUI. “I played really well today.”

The 16-year-old from Rosslare came into the week on the back of a victory at the Ulster Under-16 Boys.

The highlight of this week's win was his immaculate, seven under 64 in round two.

Dundalk’s Eoin Murphy produced the low round of the day, a 68, to finish third. Murphy was in red figures after making four birdies on the front nine and he finished two behind Power on one under.
