Walker wins in Portmarnock

Leslie Walker

Club professional Leslie Walker carded a level par 71 to win the gross prize in the first TaylorMade Winter Series outing of 2019 at Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links.

He defied the northerly breeze as he recovered from early bogeys at the first and fourth with birdies the 10th and 14th to edge out Lucan’s Mick Downes and Newlands’ Cameron Raymond.
