Sunday 4th

Australian Lucas Herbert finished strongly on the final day at Mount Juliet to lift the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open title. Three birdies on the back nine in a round of -4 saw him finish on -19, three shots clear of Rikard Karlberg on -16. Herbert had held a slender lead overnight

Irish Challengers

Shane Lowry hit an impressive 66 today for an overall tally of nine under. He will hope to carry that form into his defence of the Open title in Royal St.George. His round was blemish free as he recorded six birdies for a round of -6 today. Cormac Sharvin had been the best placed of the home challengers overnight. The Ardglass man went around in even par today for a -7 finish overall. Graeme McDowell and Rory McIlroy both recorded rounds of +2 for today and scores of -3 & -2 respectively.
