West Waterford’s Gary Hurley fired six birdies in a super five-under par round of 67 to sit just three back of the lead on the opening day of the Alps Tour’s Roma Alps Letas Open.

The former Maynooth man came into the tournament off successive rounds of 68 last week in a tie for 14th at the Alps de Las Castillas and still riding the crest of a wave, Hurley dropped just one shot en route to an opening 67 and a welcome return to form for the 28-year old who sits inside the top-5 ahead of day two.

It wasn’t such a good day for the other Irish in the field, however, with Simon Bryan (+1), Rhys Clarke (+2) and David Carey (+4) completing the Irish scoring. Full report to follow…
