Ronan Mullarney’s hopes of winning back-to-back Toro tour events were dashed when the event was reduced to 36 holes due to deteriorating weather conditions at Azata Golf Club.

Going into the final round two strokes behind Canadian Jacob Lehman, Mullarney didn’t get the chance to close the gap with play being halted and the event subsequently called with the leading trio yet to take to the course.

The Galway man had opened with a four-under 67, and followed up with a four-over 75 in testing conditions in round two. A round that saw just one of the 28 players to take to the course shooting a sub-par round.

Meanwhile, Cork’s Morgan Cain won the amateur section, enjoying a five-stroke lead over Ilan Dufrenoy of France when play was suspended, with Cain finishing in fifth place on the overall leaderboard.
