Irish suffer in washout
Ireland flattered to deceive in the weather-affected second round of the World Amateur Team Golf Championship for the Eisenhower Trophy in Buenos Aires last night, writes Chris Smart.
After a two-and-a-half-hour thunderstorm delay caused havoc with schedules, Ireland's trio made an encouraging start.
Portstewart's Paul Cutler opened with a birdie while Kevin Phelan had a birdie four at the second hole. Irish champion Alan Dunbar started with the bogey five but birdied the second hole.
After three holes Ireland were an aggregate of two-under-par, six-over for the event, and moved up the leaderboard by 10 places.
Conditions worsened and Ireland struggled. With six holes played they were nine-over for the contest and in a share of 31st spot before their round was called off.
Denmark became the new leaders completing their round at six-under-par for the event. They overtook Canada and France.
