Fionn Hickey (Muskerry) and Lee Mitchell (Knock) hold the
lead in Ballybunion after the opening day of the Munster Boys. Testing conditions were in play all day as
the 68 golfers battled with wind and rain, and there was little in the way of
respite as the rain continued into the late afternoon.
Hickey had a tough start, he had a double bogey seven on the
opening hole. He was four over after
four holes but two birdies on the fifth and sixth got him back on track. He turned on +3 and a very steady back nine
(+1) saw him card a leading four over par 76.
Mitchell was somewhat steadier, his three bogies, one double and two
birdies brought him home on +4. Niall O’Callaghan
(Greenore) is fourth on +7.
Round two gets underway tomorrow morning at 7.54am on the
Cashen course, and with better conditions forecast the race will be on to post
a score in top 45. That’s the cut mark
for Friday’s final round. The cut is
currently +18, but the weather conditions will have a big say on the final cut mark. The Munster Boys Amateur Open is kindly
