Joe Dillon carded a five under par 67 to win the Waterford Castle Pro-Am title and claim his second victory in his last four starts.
The Headfort professional held off Damian Mooney and Michael McGeady by one stroke at the course designed by Des Smyth and Declan Branigan.
“It was my first visit to the Waterford Castle and I was very impressed,” said Joe. “I felt sharp after performing pretty well in a recent EuroPro Tour outing. I feel there are a number of low scores to come if things keep going.”
With a shotgun start in operation, Joe began his round at the par-five 13th and collected seven birdies in total, his two dropped shots coming at the 12th and 14th.
Castlewarden’s Mark Whelan and amateur partners Ray Hurley, Mary Mulcahy and Paul Power won the team prize with 96 points
