Mark Power to Order of Merit win

Mark Power has taken the chequered flag in the Bridgestone Boys International Order

KILKENNY’S Mark Power has taken the chequered flag in the Bridgestone Boys International Order of Merit for 2018. Power was confirmed as Ireland’s No.1 following his selection for this year’s Jacques Leglise Trophy and the 18-year-old celebrated his Bridgestone triumph by helping Great Britain & Ireland to victory. An individual title may have proved elusive during the season but Power’s consistency, at senior and under-age level, has been remarkable.

“I had a great year despite not getting a win,” said Power. “At boys’ level, I was tied leading qualifier in the Boys’ Amateur. One of my main goals was to play well there. I did all week and although losing in the quarter-finals was disappointing. It’s the biggest boys’ event in the world.”
