Paul Dunne Tears It Up At The British Masters To Win First Pro Tournament

Paul Dunne Tears It Up At The British Masters To Win First Pro Tournament

Paul Dunne won his first ever professional tournament by claiming the British Masters title.

Dunne went into the final round tied for second, a shot behind leader Robert Karlsson. The Greystones man tore up the Newcastle course on Sunday, carding three birdies and an eagle on the front nine.

Despite having Rory McIlroy breathing down his neck for much of the tournament - he came within a shot on the 17th after landing five birdies in six holes - Dunne held out for a landmark win in his professional career. Four birdies on the back nine gave him the advantage that he required.

Dunne finished the day with a 61 and 20-under for the tournament, three shots ahead of McIlroy.

His final shot, a chip-in on the 18th, was the perfect way to finish the round. It brought the house down.

It got even better for him at the sixth as he carded an eagle.

The 11th, with a large dollop of luck, saw him score the fourth eagle of his round.
