Brendan Lawlor has made it back-to-back EDGA titles as he followed up last week’s win at the Cazoo Open to romp to victory at the ISPS HANDA World Disability Invitational at Galgorm Castle this morning.
Lawlor held a four-shot lead overnight and never looked like relinquishing that advantage when he birdied two of his opening four holes.
The Dundalk golfer ran out a six-shot winner on six-under-par following a second round three-under 69 ahead of Italian, Tomasso Perrino who shot a two-under-par 70 to finish in second place.
A double-bogey on the eighth ended his chances of challenging Lawlor on the back-nine leaving the stage clear for the Irishman to blitz the field.
Lawlor had already qualified for the season-ending EDGA finale having secured his place in Dubai in Wales last week.
There are two more EDGA European Tour events on the schedule, the EDGA Hero Open at Fairmont St Andrews from August 7-8, and the EDGA Cazoo Classic, at London Golf Club from August 14-15. Lawlor also has a start in the British Challenge, presented by Modest! Golf, a European Challenge Tour event at the start of September at The Belfry.
Lawlor is confident he can do himself justice after making his European Tour debut at the Belfry last season.
“My game is in good shape. If I put in two solid rounds and I trust my ability then I believe I’m capable of making a cut or two in these type of events like the Belfry,” said Lawlor.
