Royal Dublin’s Hugh Foley fired a six-under 64 to win the Faldo Elite Tour at Welwyn Garden City as he gave himself a confidence boost heading to this week’s Brabazon Trophy.

Foley warmed up for his Sunningdale date with a two shot win while Marc Boucher, Patrick Keeling and Sean Keeling, also enjoyed good rounds ahead of Thursday’s Brabazon.

All good rounds start with a bogey and Foley recovered from an opening blemish with birdies on 2, 6, 8 and 9 to turn in 32 and he repeated the act on his way home with birdies on 11, 13 and 17.

The field included Walker Cup contenders Arron Edwards-Hill, George Ash and Josh Berry.
