Bray's Keith Nolan cruised into the second stage of the PGA Tour Q-School in North Carolina.

The former Walker Cup ace, 34, closed with a two under par 70 at Treyburn Country Club in Durham to tie for seventh place on four under par.

Nolan is bidding to make it to next month's Q-School finals in Florida for the fifth time.

He will be joined at Stage Two by Ireland's Niall Turner and Mark Murphy.
