Northern Ireland’s Alan Dunbar has won the British Amateur Golf Championship.

The Rathmore golfer beat Austria’s Matthias Schwab by one shot, in a 36-hole final, at the Royal Troon and Glasgow - Gailes Links courses in Scotland.

The win secures a spot in this year's Open Championship at Royal Lytham & St Anne’s, a place in next year's US Open and, traditionally, an invitation to the Masters Tournament at Augusta National.
