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...

Stuart Grehan couldn’t continue his fine EuroPro Tour momentum as a disappointing final round at the Dell Technologies Championship saw him finish outside the top-40.

The Tullamore man had started the day in 22nd, hoping to continue a run of three straight top-25 finishes on the EuroPro Tour and potentially finish even higher, but a four-over 76 meant he fell down the standings in the final round.

Grehan did have two birdies on his card, both on his front nine, but two double-bogeys and two bogeys meant he finished the week at Mannings Heath at one-under-par and in a share of 41st place.

It’s still a positive run for the Irishman, who has made the cut in seven if his last eight events, but he will need a big finish to the season if he is to work his way up the Order of Merit standings and into the top-five.

Meanwhile, Chelmsford’s James Allan held onto his overnight lead by posting a four-under 68 in his final round to claim a three-shot victory over Letchworth’s Jack Slater at 17-under-par.

The Englishman had an eagle and four birdies in his final round which meant that he was able to bogey his final hole and still hold on for a comfortable win, his second victory of the season.

Slater added a 69 in his final round to claim solo second on 14-under, with Paul Maddy, Nicholas Poppleton, Jack South and James A Wilson sharing third at 12-under-par.
