Walker Cup partners Jack Hume and Gavin Moynihan were back in the winner's circle at Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links.

Foursomes partners for Ireland and for Great Britain and Ireland in the Walker Cup rout at Royal Lytham and St Annes, they were on their own in Tuesday's Winter Series singles at the Bernhard Langer designed links.

Playing off plus four, Naas ace Hume won the best nett with a 68 as rookie professional Moynihan played off scratch and edged out Naas's Robert Brazill on a countback for second spot with a 69.

In the gross, there was success for three members of the Irish panel with Hermitage's Rowan Lester firing a six under 65 to see off Naas' Conor O'Rourke and Ardee's Eugene Smith by four strokes.
