Learning from the pros

We can all learn a thing or two by watching the pros in person. Just a shame that spectator-free events make such opportunities unlikely this year

Superb playing conditions produced some impressive low scoring at the MS Ireland St Margaret’s PGA Pro-Am.

Leading players Brian Jnr McCormack (Royal Dublin GC) and Steven Quinlan (SQ Golf) picked off 16 birdies and an eagle between them as they both posted rounds of six-under-par 67.

David Higgins (Waterville Golf Links) was second on five under par with home club professional, Shane Jenkinson and John Murray (Malahide) sharing fourth on four-under par.

After reaching the turn in one under par 35, McCormack set the back nine alight with four birdies, an eagle and a bogey as he came home in five-under 32.

Quinlan matched the Royal Dublin professional score for score. Out in one under 35, he flicked the switch on the back nine collecting six birdies and a bogey to climb to the top of the leaderboard.

McCormack also claimed the team prize alongside his amateur partners with 100 points.
