The Irish quartet of Eanna Griffin, Hugh Foley, Aine Donegan and Anna Foster made a solid start to a high-scoring opening day at the Spirit International Amateur Golf Championship at Whispering Pines Golf Club, Texas.

The foursome combined for a five-under par total in the team competition that sees them sharing 13th heading into day two.

The Spirit International Amateur Championship is a world class golf event, featuring the best amateur men and amateur women golfers as they represent their respective country in team and individual competitions.

Seventy-six competitors from 19 countries, representing six continents, play in a 54-hole four-ball stroke play competition with three concurrent competition categories: international team, men’s team, women’s team.

In the Men’s team comp, Ireland share 15th at minus-two after Waterford’s Griffin combined with Royal Dublin’s Hugh Foley in signing for a 70 in round one to be trailing leaders France by seven.

Meanwhile Ireland’s women went one shot better, with Lahinch’s Donegan and Elm Park’s Foster enjoying a three-under par start to be tying 11th, five shots back of leaders Korea.

Foster is best placed of the Irish quartet in the individual competitions for both men and women, tying 14th and just three back of the lead.
