Cairndhu Golf Club’s Neil McKinstry won the opening round of the Irish Universities Golf at County Sligo this week.

The University of Ulster student topped a formidable field of competitors from throughout Ireland when he shot two-over in extremely challenging weather conditions last Thursday (November 13).

It’s a superb achievement for McKinstry who has just come back after a year out, following a back injury, after he fractured his vertebrae.

He finished one point better off than Conor Stone and Ronan Mullarney (both Maynooth University), with Colm Hughes (NUI Galway) another point behind.
