Smith wins Irish Open for Golfers with a Disability

England international Bradley Smith has admitted he enjoyed exacting revenge on home favourite Conor Stone by winning this year’s Irish Open for Golfers with a Disability.

The golfer from Royal Cromer finished the two-day event on +1, a shot clear of Ballinasloe’s Aidan Grenham after shooting rounds of 69 and 74.

There was a three-way tie for third place, with Ireland internationals Conor Stone (Carton House) and Alan Gaynor (Co. Sligo), joining Monkstown’s Colin O’Sullivan on +6.

Smith recently finished in second place behind Stone at the English Open for Golfers with a Disability at Carden Park, and he was delighted to win the title that cements his place in the top-10 of the EGDA rankings.

“Overall, I’m very happy, especially to get some revenge on Conor after he won the English Open,” said Smith with a smile.

“I’m buzzing to have won. I played the G4D event last week in Mount Juliet and that was incredible. I was unsure whether to play this week! I’m glad I did.

“Myself and Aidan had a really good battle today! We both played well.”
