Liam Grehan, in the clubhouse at -2, is the best of the strong Irish contingent as heavy rain forced play to be halted at Galgorm Castle in the Clutch Pro Tour event with just over half the field completing their opening rounds.

Grehan’s two-under is good for a provisional tie for fifth place, one ahead of John-ross Galbraith though the Whitehead man had completed just 10 holes before play was called.

Cameron Raymond and Conor O’Rourke are in the clubhouse at level-par and +1 respectively, while Stuart Grehan is among four other Irish sitting at level par with less than nine holes completed.


England’s Mitch Waite did get his round finished, and it only took him 60 blows to do so, shooting an incredible 10-under-par as one of the early starters. He carded nine birdies, an eagle, and a single bogey on his way to a course-record setting round, though the wet conditions did see preferred lies in operation.

Waite is three clear of Brandon Robinson Thompson, who in turn is three clear of Matthew Hibbs in third.

In total, there are 19 Irish players in the field of 164.
