Peter Glover won the 2014 Grant Thornton Isle of Man Close Amateur Golf Championship at Castletown on Saturday afternoon.

The Douglas member beat 2010 champion Daryl Callister 2&1 in a gripping conclusion to the last 36-holes of this year’s week-long championship at the majestic southern venue.

Glover had raced into a 5up lead after the first 18 holes of the final this morning. Callister rallied in the second 18 and at one point they were all-level once again.

However, Glover regained his composure to clinch his first island crown on the penultimate hole of the day.

Full report in Tuesday’s Examiner.
