Irish Open | Dean Burmester the early leader at Galgorm

South African Golfer Dean Burmester is the early leader on the first day of the 2020 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open at Galgorm.

Burmester finished his round, five-under-par, shooting a 65 on the par 70 course, which is based in the idealic surrounds of a 220 acre castle estate.

It has been a day to forget for one of the tournament favourites Shane Lowry, who after 16th holes was six-under-par. The possibility of missing the cut is a stark reality he must now face.

The best of the Irish so far on day one is James Sugrue who is two-under after 17 holes and Padraig Harrington who is also two-under but teed off later than Sugrue and is currently on the 6th.

Damien McGrane is one-under after 14 holes.
