Kilpatrick and Mooney share first place at Beaverstown Pro-Am

Richard Kilpatrick

Damian Mooney's rich vein of form continued when he and Banbridge's Richard Kilpatrick  fired course record rounds of six under par 66 to share first prize in the Beaverstown Pro-Am.

Mooney has now topped the leaderboard in three of his last four events – Killeen, Naas and now Beaverstown.

The Ballyliffin Golf Club pro played like a man in form on Sunday - making the most of some excellent scoring conditions to reach the turn in four under par 32 with birdies at the second, fifth, seventh and eighth.

He stalled a bit after the turn but further birdies at the 15th and 18th saw him home in two under 34.

Kilpatrick went through nine holes in three under 33 courtesy of two birdies, an eagle at the par five fifth and a dropped shot at the eighth.

Three more birdies followed on the back nine at the 11th, 13th and 15th as he came home in three under 33.

Six players shared third place, two shots behind the winners – Graeme Dunlea, Philip Walton, Brendan McGovern, N O'Briain, Jimmy Bolger and Colm Moriarty.

Moriarty walked away with the team prize, guiding his amateur partners to success with 97 points.
