Kinsale teenager John Murphy bagged the St Andrews Links Trophy in dramatic fashion on the 19th last night - becoming only the third Irishman to win the prestigious tournament.

The 19-year-old Maynooth University student kept his cool to hole a 25-foot putt for birdie and edge out German Jannik de Bruyn on the first extra hole.

It came after the pair could not be separated after 72 holes, both finishing on nine-under-par (278).

This victory for Murphy comes almost exactly a year after his Leinster Students Amateur Open Championship triumph and is, undoubtedly, his biggest win to date. Murphy also follows in the footsteps of the two previous Irish winners; Conor O'Rourke, two years ago, and Alan Dunbar, in 2009.
