Reigning European champion Juan Postigo claimed the top prizes in both the Gross and Nett divisions as the European Disabled Golf Association kicked off its 2022 campaign with the Vilamoura Open.

The remarkable one-legged Spaniard posted rounds of 71 and 68 to skate home by nine strokes at five-under par from both Italian Tommaso Perrino and England’s Mike Brown.

Conor Stone led home the Irish contingent with rounds of 77 and 80 to take fifth at 13-over par at Dom Pedro Pinhal.

Dubliner Cian Arthurs carded rounds of 82 and 78 to finish inside the top-10 at 16-over, while making his EDGA debut, Caolan Munnelley’s 76 and 78 led home the Irish in the Nett competition with his 10-over par tally claiming a top-5 finish.
