Moynihan Wins McEvoy Trophy
Ireland's Gavin Moynihan became the first Irish player to win the prestigious Peter McEvoy Trophy at Copt Heath on Thursday, closing out with an impressive five shot winning margin over Max Orrin and Nick Marsh, both from England.
The Tom Montgomery Order of Merit winner in 2011 fired impressive rounds of 68-68-69-70 which were enough for a comfortable victory. The Island's young star joins Ryder Cup stars Lee Westwood and Justin Rose as winners of the prestigious event.
This is Moynihan's second major win on the international stage, having captured the Under 18's title at the Faldo Series in 2011. This great start to the season continues on from his impressive finish at the Junior Players Championship in September where he finished tied third at the infamous Sawgrass venue.
John Ross Galbraith (Whitehead) finished 15th at Copt Heath with Irish Boys Champion Jordan Hood (Galgorm Castle) back in 34th.
