Experienced campaigners Damien McGrane and Denis O'Sullivan mastered the tricky conditions to share first prize in the €10,000 Cork Pro-Am.
Blustery winds and dry fairways put a premium on accuracy and it was 45-year old McGrane and 68-year old O'Sullivan who coped best, carding one-under par 71s to edge out Damien Mooney, Philip Walton, Cian McNamara, Simon Thornton and Noel Murray.
Cork Pro-Am, Cork GC (Par 72): 71 D McGrane, D O'Sullivan; 72 D Mooney (Nevada Bobs Belfast), P Walton, C McNamara (Monkstown), S Thornton, N Murray (Massereene); 73 D Sugrue (Dooks Golf Links), M O'Sullivan (Piltown Driving Range), B McGovern (Headfort), D Ryan (Cahir Park), W O'Callaghan (Fernhill Golf & CC).
