The Kells man, now Head Professional at Carlow GC, took top prize in the 54-hole tournament after returning a fine (-6) 212 total. After dominating the 2017 season, McGrane took a back seat from the Irish PGA circuit for most of the 2018 season as he settled into his role at Carlow. Off the back of that mini-hiatus from the fairways, he looks a golfer reborn already this term, and now a two-time champion in the €80,000 event, McGrane took home a winning cheque worth €7,500 for the performance. In fact, there was double joy for McGrane who, along- side compatriots Tom Muldoon, Kevin Commins and Kieran Grant, also claimed the team prize with a 251 total. The tournament saw 250 players from 31 countries travel to compete but, in the end, it was the Meath man who took home the spoils. Turkish delight for Damien McGrane as he captures Golf Mad Pro-Am CLASS IS PERMANENT Damien McGrane
