Dermot McElroy will take a four-shot lead into the final round of the NI Open on the Clutch Pro Tour played on Cairdhnu and Castlerock’s golf courses. 

McElroy has been in excellent form recently with two runner-up finishes and a share of eleventh place in his last four starts between the EuroPro Tour and Challenge Tour and he looks set to reap the rewards of his good streak. 

Forest Little amateur Jack McDonnell is his nearest challenger on three-under-par after rounds of 69 and 71. 

Northern Ireland’s McElroy has carded a pair of 68s to storm to the summit in this event which serves as a qualifier for the ISPS Handa World Invitational at Galgorm Castle later this month thanks to the sponsorship of Modest! Golf Management. 

There is a healthy Irish presence towards the top of the leaderboard also with K Club’s Conor O’Rourke in fine fettle ahead of the Irish Challenge coming up in a share of 3rd on two-under. 

Limerick’s Tim Rice shares seventh on level-par while Rowan Lester is in 19th on plus three.
