Inclement weather on Day 7 of the Irish Open could not dampen the spirits of competitors nor their acolytes. A veritable power play from Andrew Johnston resulted in a brace of triple peels in his 2 nil win versus Danny Johnston. Also in the Championship Singles, Patsy Fitzgerald twarted the hopes of US public representative, Randy Cardo, with some clever approach play and accurate hoop-running. Cardo displayed some outstanding shot-making and an even temperament in a game that had neutrals cooing.
This year's match between CAI (Nathaniel Healy, Jane Morrison, Conor Broderick, Sandy Greig, Dave McGrath and Myles McWeeney) and the CA (Brian Havill, Jim Field, Kevin Carter, Paul Hetherington, Richard Peperell and Sophie McGlen) was played at Surbiton in London, a club famed for its welcoming atmosphere - and excellent lawns.
