Eamon Gibney scored a final round of 46 to win the Irish Open at Glenville with a 54 hole aggregate of 25 under par 137. Eamon, who was third in the 2013 Catalan Open, finished three shots clear of fellow Irishman Liam O'Donovan. O'Donovan, winner of that 2013 Catalan event and no stranger to podium finishes in international opens, fired a phenomenal 43 final round to post a 140 total. Alan Hanlon, himself round in 43 in the second round, scored 50 on Sunday to finish third on 142.  World Cup winner John Ross Crangle (45 final round), 2011 Irish Open winner Damien Fleming (46) and World Strokeplay champion John Walsh (48) tied on 18 under par.

 Nuolen, 26 April 2014

The first SPPA Trophy this year, organized on the Nuolen Pitch and Putt course, was won by the Swiss international player Silvano Umberg. It was quite a start to the new playing season for the 15 year old Jürg Fux, who aced the 72m long 17th hole.

2014 will be a special year for the Swiss Pitch and Putt Association. It will be celebrating 10 years of existence and will also be paying tribute to President Brigitte Albisetti, who is retiring having founded the Association in 2004. Since then she has managed the SPPA with great dedication and commitment.

The 2014 playing season, besides the Swiss Pitch and Putt Championship in St. Moritz (28 June), foresees another five tournaments and the loved Kids Trophy. The weather at the tournament in Nuolen was favourable and the players were delighted to meet together after the long winter season. Silvano Umberg, Swiss Champion in 2009, won the competition with 58 strokes. The highlight of the day was the Hole-in-One from 3-times Swiss Junior Champion Jürg Fux. Unfortunately Jürg couldn't see his ball fall into the hole as the 17th green is some metres higher than the Teeing area, but in any event, this fact didn't spoil his joy.
