Michael Hoey is the Champion at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship


Scotland -Michael Hoey's final round 68 was enough to hold off fellow

Ulsterman Rory Mcilroy's Sunday 65 (-20) and post a winning score of -22.


“It’s just amazing what winning a big tournament can do for you,” said Hoey.

“Winning the Dunhill Links will open a lot of doors for me and getting into

huge tournaments like the Dubai World Championship is one of the biggest

benefits. I’m ecstatic.

“To move from 83rd to 15th in the Race to Dubai in one go is unbelievable

really. Trying to get into the Dubai World Championship was one of my goals

before winning in St Andrews but I don’t have to worry about any of that now.

I can’t wait to get to Dubai – it will be a great way to end the season.”


Fellow Irishmen Graeme McDowell finished -18, Padraig Harrington was

tied for 8th at -16.


World #1 Luke Donald finished tied for 9th, after a final round 70.
