Evolve Golf Coaching’s Michael McGeady fired a record-breaking, nine-under par 62 to win Belvoir Park Pro-Am by five shots.

The Derry-based professional (40) carded nine pars, two eagles, six birdies and one bogey as he shaving one stroke off the previous best set by Philip Walton.

"As players, we need courses to be in great condition to shoot really low scores and Belvoir was superb today,” said Michael, who admitted he was lucky to finish his round before afternoon rain made the going much tougher for the later starters.

McGeady has made a strong start to the season and is currently leading the PGA in Ireland Order of Merit. 

His success in Belfast follows bis victory at the Heritage Challenge Pro-Am at the start of the month and second place at the Shell Pro-Am in Carne last Sunday.

"I’m playing nice golf at the minute, just taking it one shot at a time," added Michael, who will be in the 130-strong field for the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Qualifier at Rosapenna from June 30 to July 1.

"My game has matured. I’m not taking on risky shots which I might have done in the past."
Ardee’s Ciaran Molloy and Old Conna’a Neil O’Briain shot 67s to finish tied for second.
