MICHAEL Hoey wrote another glorious chapter in the remarkable story of Northern Irish golf after holding off illustrious compatriots Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell to win the Dunhill Links Championship yesterday.

Hoey carded a final round of 68 at for a 22-under-par total of 266 to claim his second European Tour title of the season and the first prize of £515,000.

Meanwhile, in the Pro-Am, Lee Westwood and Johann Rupert finished joint 12th while Rotherham putter Danny Willett and ex-cricketer Michael Vaughan came 15th.
