Gilmore Gains Advantage at Royal County Down1 min read

Posted on: 20th Oct 2015

Round 02 of the Carr Golf Links Pro-Am got underway in the stunning surrounds of the 2015 Irish Open host course, Royal County Down, where a stern test of links golf was on offer.

Whilst the weather was unusually calm, the course still bared its teeth and scoring was tough for all competitors. However, there were a fair few birdies along the way from Professionals and amateurs alike.

In the Individual Professional Tournament it was the PGA of America’s Robbie Gilmore who tamed the course, shooting a superb three-over par (33 Points) and taking the overall Professional lead on 65 Points.  In second place is PGA of Canada-Ontario’s Professional, Bob Beauchemin, who followed up his first round 31 points with a second round 32 to remain just two off the lead.


For Round 03 the tournament moves to the recently announced 2019 Open Championship venue, Royal Portrush, for Rounds 03 and 04, where an exciting finish is sure to unfurl with the top-five Professionals being separated by a total of just five points.

The Pro-Am competition is led by ‘Team Adidas’ made up of Dwayne Boecker, Todd Fraser, Lyndon Kappel and Louis Ferraris after a second round 83 points took them to a 163-point total (-19).
