Tim Rice (Limerick GC) returned to the winner’s circle for the first time since his Irish PGA Championship success at The Kelly’s Resort Rosslare Pro-Am on Saturday.
The 39-year-old, winner of the Irish title in June, signed for a three under par 69 to share top spot with Damian Mooney (Damian Mooney Golf) and Tara Delaney (The Eddie Doyle Golf Academy).
The trio finished the tournament – which raised funds for Wexford Hospice Homecare and St Patrick’s Special School – a shot clear of Richard Kilpatrick (Banbridge GC) and Michael McGeady.
Denis O’Sullivan (La Playa GC) and amateur partners Patrick Barrett, Stephen Lucas and Clement Hehir topped the team standings with 92 points.
