Kilkenny teen golf sensation retains Irish title

 Already being spoken about in the same tones  as Rory McIlroy, Kilkenny golfer, Mark Power retained the Irish Boys title in dramatic circumstances yesterday at Castletroy in Limerick.

The 16 year old eagled the final hole of a three hole playoff with an eagle from 129 yards to beat two English rivals. 

The last golfer to achieve the feat is current European Tour professional, Paul Dunne.
