Aidan Grenham and Alan Gaynor earned places on the podium as the European Disabled Golf Association (EDGA) teed off its 2023 campaign at Amendoeira Golf Resort in Portugal.
Ballinasloe’s Grenham posted seven birdies and an eagle across the two days on the Christy O’Connor Jnr layout but there were understandably plenty of mistakes thrown in as part of a rollercoaster reintroduction to competitive golf.
Grenham’s rounds of 76 and 74 saw him finish in second place at six-over par, three behind eventual winner Gordon McLay but four ahead of his Irish teammate Gaynor.
The Co. Sligo man carded three birdies over the two days, signing for rounds of 78 and 76 for a 10-over tally.
Congrats to @AlanGaynor94 who finished 3rd overall today at the EDGA event in Portugal today. Plenty of support from members of @CountySligoGC out there to support him. Best of luck next week Alan in your second event, we’re all behind you. pic.twitter.com/4UHZ3tL9KP
