Magical McElroy majors at the West

Success has been a long time coming for Dermot McElroy but in the end, victory was swift

Ten years after a certain Rory McIlroy first came to prominence at Rosses Point, Ballymena’s finest gave a golfing masterclass to capture the West of Ireland title. In the morning he put an end to Sean Flanagan’s quest to become Sligo’s first champion since Cecil Ewing. In the afternoon, McElroy gave the gallery an exhibition, clinching this famous championship with birdies on 14 and 15.

Although he has struggled at various stages throughout the championship, and did so again on the front nine during the final, he has been the finest player in the field this week. One of his key matches came in the third round against Eddie McCormack, when he found himself three down after just eight holes. However he came home in two under to turn that game around. Down by one after nine in the final against Griffin, he turned it on again with a flawless display on the back nine.
