Ireland moved up one place to joint seventh after the second round in the 72-holes PGA of Europe Championship at Atalaya Park on the Costa del Sol thanks to a sub-par round of 69 by John Dwyer.

The Ashbounre Club pro carded four birdies and one bogey after starting at the 10th hole and remarked: "I had only one birdie over my first nine holes but then I made three in the next six holes but dropped a stroke at the fifth."

Headford's Brendan McGovern handed in a 74 while Leslie Walker (Dundalk) finished with a 76 for his card to be 'ringed'. Only two scores count daily.

Dwyer's 69 puts him in joint fourth place on the individual leaderboard.
