Former Walker Cup star Jack Hume showed his class when he fired a four under 67 to win the gross in the Tuesday Winter Series outing at Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links.

The 23-year old from Naas finished one ahead of Dundalk's Caolan Rafferty with Laytown and Bettytown’s Cian Geraghty taking third with a two under 69.

A field of 59 took to the links and scoring was excellent with Sutton four handicapper Jamie Taylor claiming the best nett with a superb 66.

Former European Tour winner Damien McGrane was second with a 67 while Ballinrobe’s Shannon Burke, playing off two, had a fine 69 to finish third.
