EUROPEAN TOUR PGA TOUR CHALLENGE TOUR LPGA TOUR IRISH NEWS EQUIPMENT STATS Dan Walton Shootout in Irish Amateur Open shows the strength of Irish golf AMATEUR GOLF IN RUDE HEALTH W arrenpoint's Colm Campbell outlasted Jack Hume to win the Flogas Irish Amateur Open Championship at Royal Dublin. However, the real victor was golf. It was a superbly contested tournament where neither player deserved to lose. It was to be 29-year-old Campbell who would prevail by a single stroke with a cool par on the last to secure victory. Winning by six strokes at one point, he had to rally to repel a back nine surge from Naas man Jack Hume, who holed a 60- foot putt on the last hole to almost force a playoff. Yet, Campbell kept his nerve to win his biggest tournament to date. He finished the week on 16-under, having broken par in all four rounds. It was a glorious shootout on the links of the capital. It is now nine months since a five-strong GB&I team beat the Americans to win the Walker Cup. With messrs Hume and Campbell making a tough test like Royal Dublin look a breeze, it seems like Irish amateur golf has never been stronger. Colm Campbell
