Niall Kearney 4th Place finish

Niall Kearney narrowly missed out on becoming the first Irish golfer to break the 60 mark on tour, as he signed for a 61 in the final round of the Canary Islands Championship in Tenerife.

Kearney made nine birdies and an eagle in his round - dropping a solitary shot - with his 10-under-par effort seeing him surge up the leaderboard.

He needed back-to-back birdies on his final two holes - the eighth and ninth - to card a 59 but finished his fine 18 with two pars.

Kearney’s 61 was enough to see him finish in a share of fourth place overall, still way off the pace of tournament winner Garrick Higgo.

Kearney uses a SeeMore FGP Original - 37", 71 lie, 2 loft and SM60g grip.
