Damien Mooney carded back to back rounds of 67 to successfully defend the Cairndhu Pro-Am title.

The Ballyliffin man's two round total of 134 (-6) gave him a four shot advantage over the trio of Robert Giles (Greenore), Neil O'Briain (Old Conna) and Cian McNamara (Monkstown).

Giles and McNamara had led overnight after opening rounds of 65 (-5) but struggled on day two at the Co Antrim course, ending the day with a pair of three over 73s.

McNamara at least had the satisfaction of leading his amateur partners of Scott, Blair and McAllister to the team title with a two round total of 186.

Mooney actually made a sluggish start to his round yesterday, dropping a shot at his opening hole, the par four 10th before adding eight successive pars to go to the turn in one over 37.

After another par at the par four first, he played the remaining eight holes in four under with birdies at the second, third, fourth, seventh and ninth, offset by a dropped shot at the eighth.
