Golf – Ballyliffin’s McCarroll Takes Maiden Pro Tour Win

Brendan Mc Carroll took his first pro tour win on Sunday at the Gosser Open in Austria.

Playing in his second season on the Alps Tour, Brendan took his maiden pro victory against Northern Ireland’s Gareth Shaw after a play off. Both players finished on-14 after three days of high scoring action. Brendan who lives in Letterkenny and plays out of Ballyliffin Golf Club held his nerve at the second play off hole to grab the win.

Sunday’s victory now puts Brendan into second place on the order of merit, where at the end of the season the top five will automatically move up to the European Challenge Tour.

Brendan who has already moved into Slovenia for this weeks event gave his reaction on his first pro win to Oisin Kelly.
