In-form Ward takes Knights of Malta Cup

Brian Ward’s impressive start to the 2015 season continued on Sunday when he destroyed the field to win the Knights of Malta Cup by an impressive three shot margin.

Ward, who was second last week and won the previous Sunday, shot an eight under par 64, off 16, in the first major Strokeplay event of the season to win comfortably from a group of players on 67.

Best of these was 12-handicapper Ollie English, who took second place on countback thanks to a five under par 31 over the back nine.

Brian Reneghan who has also had a good start to the season won Category 1 ahead off teenager Josh Mackin who shot 68 to follow up his score of 41pts for third place on St Patrick’s Day.

David Brennan edged out Pat Donaghy on countback for the Category 2 prize while Tom Clarke was a comfortable winner of the Category 3 prize after shooting 67 off 18.
