McNamara facing big finale as on EPD Tour
Headfort's Rory McNamara needs a top two finish in his final event to have any chance of a Top-5 spot and automatic promotion to the Challenge Tour.
The Co Meath man is ninth in the Order of Merit with €12,844 from 16 starts on the Pro Golf Tour having won earlier in the season and finished second three weeks ago.
However, he is more than €3,000 behind the man in fifth place and needs a big finish with only next month's Castanea Resort Pro Golf Tour Championship remaining.
McNamara finished tied 35th in the Preis des Hardenberg GolfResorts event earlier this week where Stackstown's Richard Bridges missed the cut.
Bridges is 59th in the Order of Merit with €2,977 from 14 starts
