No Joy For Irish In The Dubai Duty Free Open


Russell Knox defeated Ryan Fox in a playoff in Ballylifin yesterday to claim just his second European Tour win of his career.

It makes him the first Scottish winner of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open since Colin Montgomerie in 2001.

There was no joy for the Irish competitors over the weekend – Shane Lowry and Rory McIlory finished best on 2 under par, 12 shots off the winning score.
