The Irish pair finished on an eight-under 284 – six strokes adrift of winner Ben Stow, who also carded a closing 66.

Hurley's 66 included a stunning eagle three on the 521-yard 11th, seven birdies and two bogeys. Moynihan, who began the final round a stroke off the pace, concluded with a 71 made up of three birdies one bogey and 14 pars.

Cormac Sharvin, who started the final round as joint leader, posted 73 despite making a complete mess of the 12th, where he had a nightmare nine to drop four strokes.

Meanwhile, Denmark's Emily Pedersen won the British Ladies Open Amateur Championship at Royal St George, beating Belgium's Leslie Cloots 3&1 in the final.
