It's Capt Cassidy for PGA Irish Region

Nuremore's Maurice Cassidy will captain the Irish Region of the PGA this season.

He will be succeeded by the Curragh's Gerry Burke, who was named as vice-captain following the region's AGM at PGA National Ireland.

Royal Dublin professional Leonard Owens was presented with a PGA Advanced Fellowship award for his services to the game, becoming the first Irishman to receive the accolade.
