Gilmore Set For Portrush Push1 min read


Posted on: 22nd Oct 2015

The recently confirmed 2019 Open Championship venue, Royal Portrush Golf Club, played host to the Carr Golf Links Pro-Am for Round 03 and it certainly didn’t disappoint.

Despite an early morning downpour the course was in incredible condition and offered plenty of opportunities for good scoring for both Professionals and Amateurs alike.

Cementing himself at the top of the Individual Professional leaderboard was the PGA of America’s Robbie Gilmore whose two birdies on the front nine saw him secure a four-over par 76 (32 points) and sees him head into the final round one point clear of the chasers at 97 points (+12).

Just one point back is PGA of Canada-Ontario’s Professional, Bob Beauchemin, who remains close in contention after an excellent three-over Par (33 points) moves him onto 96 points.

In third place is early Round 01 leader, John Reeves (PGA of America), whose third round consisted of three birdies and, after signing for a three-over par 75 (33 Points), meant that he is right back in contention for first place.

With the top four Professionals separated by just four points, and a strong wind coming in for the final round, there is very much everything to play for.

Team Taylormade, made up of Jose Gonzalez, Matt Cizmar, Matthew MacKay and Jason Miyasaki, lead the way in the Pro-Am event with a –32 total of 248 points.
