Win For Team Galvin Green Member Donaldon
Posted by: Darren Ramowski on Mon 02 Jul 2012
Welshman Jamie Donaldson became the second Team Galvin Green member in four months to win his first European Tour title when he captured the Irish Open at Royal Portrush, County Antrim, by four shots on Sunday (1 July).
Wearing a Limited Edition Mills Ventil8 shirt, Neville trousers and a West belt, the ‘man in black’ took a one shot lead into the last round in bright sunshine under challenges from Englishmen Anthony Wall and Mark Foster, as well as local favourite and three-time Major winner Padraig Harrington in front of record sell-out crowds for a Tour event.
But the Welsh No.1 held his nerve to finish in style with birdies on the last two holes for a final round 66 and an 18 under total for his first victory in 255 Tour appearances, plus the biggest prize of his career at €333,000.
“I felt so comfortable out there,” he said as he collected the trophy. “I didn’t look at the leaderboard and it was only when I hit my second to the last that I thought about winning. I’m so pleased that I won here too, because I don’t think we’ve ever played on a better golf course on the European Tour.”
Donaldson had put the Galvin Green Multi-layer Concept into practice during the event, as the wind and rain lashed the links course and he switched comfortably between an Ayres GORE-TEX® rainwear jacket in Curacao/black/white, a black Baxley half-zip WINDSTOPPER® and a Desmond INSULA™ pullover.
In April, another Team Galvin Green member Thorbjørn Olesen became the youngest winner on the European Tour this year when he captured his debut title at the Sicilian Open aged just 22. He had a top-20 finish in Ireland.
