Shaw aiming to impress at Galgorm Castle

Gareth Shaw hopes for another impressive performance on home soil after his impressive fifth place at the Irish Open when he competes in this week's Northern Ireland Open at Galgorm Castle.

Lurgan native Shaw will have the benefit of local knowledge this week and he is Galgorm Castle's tournament professional.

Five-time European Tour winner Michael Hoey leads the field in the Challenge Tour event while the entry also includes Nick Dougherty, Ross McGowan and 2008 Ryder Cup player Oliver Wilson.
