Michael Hoey is playing life’s long game

On the face of it, Michael Hoey’s decision to swap his yardage book for a rule book and take up a role as a DP World Tour referee might surprise a few people. By his own meticulously high standards, the Northern Irishman even impressed himself at times with his play...

The ever-impressive Colm Moriarty took advantage of pristine conditions to score a five-under 66 and win his first event of the season at the Portmarnock Links Pro-Am.

The experienced Glasson professional needed to be at his very best to edge Banbridge’s Richard Kilpatrick into second place by a single stroke.

It was still a day to remember for Kilpatrick who bagged a hole-in-one at the 11th but the day belonged to Moriarty who also collected the team honours alongside Eoin O’Connor and John Byrne.

St Margaret’s Shane Jenkinson was the only other player to manage par or better after returning an even par round to take seventh.
