Senior men top of the pile in quest for Euro glory

Published 04/09/2013 | 05:00

Ireland fired themselves into pole position to grab one of the top seeding spots in the European Senior Men's Team Championship in Hungary with an excellent opening day.

Winners of the title in 2007 and '08 and runners-up in 2010, Ireland topped the 22 nations in the first round with a two-under-par aggregate. They were well clear of England, who finished on five-over-par, just ahead of Sweden.

Cork's Tom Cleary led the way with a stunning display carding a three-under-par 68.

Arthur Pierse posted an eagle three on the fifth on his way to a 69, while Adrian Morrow shot 75 – the same score as Garth McGimpsey.

The Irish women are also in with a good chance of making the quarter-finals, despite most of their scores being in the 80s.

Ten strokes separate Ireland from eighth-placed countries Scotland and Switzerland.

The Netherlands, with a total of 388, are leading France by seven strokes going into the second day's play.

Carol Wickham was the best of the Irish, returning a highly creditable 76, a card which contained only one bogey on the homeward half and this came at the last.

Suzanne Corcoran, after a lacklustre outward 40, came home in 38 with just one bogey.

Laura Webb (80), Sheena McElroy (81) and Pat Doran (83) all counted towards the 398 aggregate.
