Giles and Moriarty share first at Dunfanaghy Pro-Am

Greenore's Robert Giles and Drive Golf Performance's Colm Moriarty carded identical rounds of 67 and 63 to share first place on six under at the Dunfanaghy Pro-Am.

The duo finished a shot ahead of Waterville's David Higgins at the two-day tournament with Elm Park's Dara Lernihan. Colin Park's Peter Martin and Keith Shannon tied for fourth on three under.

It was Moriarty's second win in succession following last week's success in the Dr William Flynn Memorial tournament at Shannon.

In contrast, the experienced Giles has played sparingly so far this season with a best-place finish of tied for third at The K Club in early May.  

Gary Wardlow guided his amateur partners of Odhran McGettigan, Clive Davison and Conor McGettigan to the team prize with 189 points.
