Michael Hoey is playing life’s long game

Michael Hoey is playing life’s long game

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...

Michael Hoey closed with two 69’s which earned him a T5 spot at the D&D Real Czech Challenge over the weekend.

For his efforts Hoey earned €7,320 which jumped him up 91 places to 28th in the Road to Oman rankings with a total earnings now of €11,798.

It was another strong finish too from Gavin Moynihan who carded 71 and then a closing 67 in the final two rounds to finish T16 and earned €2,135 which moved him up one place to 7th in the overall rankings. It’s been a strong few weeks for Moynihan having finished 2nd at the Match Play 9 and also claimed is first win as a professional at the Lookers Championship.

Unfortunately it was a weekend to forget for Gary Hurley who had sat just two shots off the pace after the first two rounds.  Finishing with rounds of 76 and 73 dropped him down the leaderboard to T47. Of the other Irish players in the field, Kevin Phelan finished T52 while Cormac Sharvin & Stephen Grant missed the cut.
