Mixed day for the Irish
There were mixed results for Irish players in the FBD Men's Irish Open at Fitzwilliam LTC yesterday.
Second seed Sam Barry from Limerick had a comfortable 6-2 6-1 victory over qualifier Howard Scott of Great Britain.
It was a day of contrasting fortunes for the Bothwell family from Belfast.
Peter enjoyed a great 6-2 6-4 win over Bruce Strachan, making very few unforced errors against a player he had lost to last week in a tournament in England.
His younger brother Sam, who was a wildcard entry in the competition, lost to Tom Farquharson, 6-3 6-1.
