Richard O’Donovan showed his class again as he made it a hat trick of Irish PGA wins at the Edmondstown Pro-Am on Friday.

The Dubliner carded a bogey-free round of 66 to pip Brendan McGovern by a shot on five-under-par.

O’Donovan who has already picked up wins in Roganstown and Lucan birdied five of his opening ten holes before eight successive pars saw him over the line.


“I played pretty solid and gave myself lots of chances if i converted it could have been very very low. I had 6 birdie putts inside 10 feet and alot more inside 20ft.

“The game plan was to be aggressive and get the ball as far down as i could. There were a few holes where i played a bit safe but for the most part i was fairly aggresive.”

Headfort pro McGovern held the lead in the clubhouse on four-under for most of the afternoon while Damian Mooney of Lough Erne was a shot further back.

Maura Morrin of Naas shared fourth place alongside Limerick’s Tim Rice on two-under after a round of 69 while Hazel Kavanagh and Brian O’Reilly ended the day on one-under.
