Down golfer Jonathan Caldwell has made the cut on his return to the European Tour this week.
The 35-year-old - who earned his Tour card having successfully come through Q-School in Spain - is in action at the Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa.
Caldwell added a second-round 69 to his opening round of 74 to lie at one-under-par for the tournament - eight shots off the halfway lead held by Spain's Pablo Larrazabal.
In a week where the European Tour has allowed players to wear shorts given the sweltering heat in South Africa, Caldwell posted a bogey-free second round of 69, which included three birdies, to leave himself in a tie for 14th.
A blemish-free second round contrasted Caldwell's first round, which included two bogeys and two double-bogeys.
Another Irish player, Cormac Sharvin, endured a difficult week where a second-round of 73 added to an opening round of 80 left him six shots adrift of the cut on nine-over-par.
Sharvin's first-round included five bogeys and a quadruple-bogey nine on the par-five 15th to leave him on eight-over, while four second-round birdies were offset by five bogeys in a one-over 73.
Elsewhere, Portmarnock's Conor Purcell also made the cut in his first event as a professional this week.
The 22-year-old, who won the Australian Amateur Championship earlier this year, shot a five-under-par second round of 67 to qualify for the weekend at the AVJennings New South Wales Open.
Purcell - a member of the Great Britain and Ireland Walker Cup team in September - shot a first-round 74, but responded in fine style with a superb second round.
After a front nine of one-over, Purcell carded six birdies in a back nine of 30 to leave himself in a tie for 34th at three-under.
The lead at the Twin Creeks Golf and Country Club near Sydney is held by Australian Andrew Dodt on 14-under-par.
The Dubliner will next week tee it up in the prestigious Emirates Australian Open, which carries a total purse of $1.5million.
