Wexford's Rhys Clarke birdied five of his last six holes to win the Senior Scratch Cup at Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links on Friday.

His four-under 67 was good enough for a one-shot win over Woodbrook's Conor McGlynn with Portarlington's Karl McCormack third on 69 and Newlands' Jake Whelan fourth with a 70.

Some 200 players took the links with seven handicapper Mark Crowley from The Island claiming the Junior Scratch Cup by a stroke from County Louth's Paul Reilly with a 74.
