Richard Finch from England defied all the odds to win the Irish open Golf Championship today,even had time to take a dip in the River Maigue before he chipped on to the 18th green to achieve victory.Finch was holding a three shot lead when his second shot left him on the bank of the Maigue ,he managed to chip on to the green but ended up in the Maigue to the amusement of the vast crowd who were in raptures of laughter as it was replayed on the large video screen.A great performance from the 40 year old Yorkshire Man .
