Guerrier ended his week six shots clear of the chasing pack, 17 under par the winning total. He played his final 48 holes this week in 16-under par with not a single dropped shot from the 6th hole in Friday's second round.

McGee signed for his third 69 in a row following an opening 75 and the Team Ireland supported golfer finished his week in a tie for 15th. He picks up the Christy O'Connor Memorial Trophy for his troubles and will move up the Race to Oman standings heading into the crucial home-stretch of the season.

Injury plagued Chris Selfridge will take satisfaction from a solid performance on home soil, the Ulsterman ending the week on level par, with fellow northerner Cormac Sharvin one shot further back on one-over par.

David Carey from Dublin, who got a place in the field from Team Ireland Golf finished inside the top 50 on three-over par.
