Robert Giles returned to winning ways at the Belvoir Park Pro-Am.
The Greenore GC professional, making only his second start of the season, posted a four-under par 67 in sunny conditions at the Belfast course.

It gave the experienced campaigner a one-shot victory over Gareth Shaw (Moyola Park) with Simon Thornton (Tulfarris Golf Resort) and Richard Kilpatrick (Banbridge GC) a shot further back in joint third place.

With a shotgun start in operation, Giles, playing in the morning wave, began his round at the par-3 fourth with an opening birdie. He followed up with further birdies at the fifth, eighth and 10th to reach four under after seven before a dropped shot at the par-3 11th halted his progress.

The 46-year-old picked up his fifth birdie of the round at the par-4 13th and then parred his way in to post the winning score.

Simon Thornton and amateur partners Tom Muldoon, Declan McKeever and Darren McKeever grabbed the team prize with a score of 89 points.
