South west winds gusting over 40mph have delayed the first round of the Irish Amateur Open at Royal Dublin by one hour and 20 minutes.
The majority of the fancied contenders, including 14 members of the Great Britain and Ireland Walker Cup squad, were due to begin their opening rounds between 9.36 am and 10.21 am.
