On the face of it, Michael Hoey’s decision to swap his yardage book for a rule book and take up a role as a DP World Tour referee might surprise a few people. By his own meticulously high standards, the Northern Irishman even impressed himself at times with his play...

Brian Doheny and Steven Quinlan are one round away from capturing the £33,250 Golfbreaks PGA Fourball Championship at Carden Park in Cheshire.

The Irish pair returned two stunning rounds of 62 and 63 to reach 19-under par and pull one shot clear of the teams of Mark Sandry & James Wiltshire and Adam Wootton and James Ablett of England ahead of Thursday’s final round.

“A good round again, we dove-tailed really well,” said Doheny. “I didn’t have the best of starts but Steven rolled in a couple of putts. When one of us was out of a hole, the other was in nice and tight either making par or birdie so it worked well all day.”

“It would be nice to get it done tomorrow [Thursday]… hopefully we can bring it home,” he added.

As for how the pair have reached this perfect partnership, it’s not their first rodeo in the fourball format.

“We played together quite a lot,” Quinlan said. “We’ve been playing fourball together now for about eight years. We train together. We don’t get to play a huge amount together on the region but we’d play a bit of casual golf together and talk to each other quite a lot so it’s nice to play in this, it’s a bit of a break from the singles and nicer when we play well!”

The pair return to the course for the final round at 10.11. Best of luck lads!
