O’Flaherty leads Munster Strokeplay, Draw for Day 2

Gary O'FlahertyCork’s Gary O’Flaherty shot the low round of the afternoon to take a two stroke lead into the second day of the Munster Strokeplay Championship.  Cork Golf Club proved to be at tough test for everyone during the opening day of the Munster Strokeplay Championship.  Although there were several under-par rounds not a single golfer got through the day without at least two bogies.  Indeed there were plenty of eagles on the par fives, but there were also several triple bogies also as the quick greens and testing wind challenged the field.

Cork’s Mark Ford was an early morning starter and he posted a two under par 70 which set the tone.  Both Robbie Pierse and Stephen Healy came in with 69’s, and Portmarnock duo Jack Pierse and John Greene also shot opening rounds of 70.  The wind picked up again in the afternoon and Ford was the only one of the top five to hold his spot.  He added a 75 to hold second place on +1.  O’Flaherty posted the best afternoon round.  His 70 when added to his morning 73 gave him a -1 total of 143 and he leads the tournament by two shots.  Stephen Healy (The Royal Dublin) is in third place on +2, and there five players on +3.

The cut fell at +10 with exactly 39 players making it through to the final two rounds.  Play in Cork Golf Club gets underway at 7.30am.
