Miami Celtics win in Mexico City

Tipperary native Denis Lynch and Galway-born Michael Duffy won the first leg of the Longines Global Champions League in Mexico on Saturday where they represented Miami Celtics.

Lying in sixth place after Friday’s opening round, league first-timer Duffy (EFS Top Contender) and Lynch (RMF Cadeau De Muze) staged a remarkable second round comeback with two clear rounds leaving them on a final score of six faults.

As the teams around them picked up faults, the Irish pair found themselves on top of the podium at the finish ahead of the Paris Panthers team (which included Offaly’s Darragh Kenny) in second with 12 faults. Bertram Allen’s Valkenswaard United finished third also on 12 faults but in a slightly slower time than Paris Panthers.
