Old and new embrace in the Nissan Irish Open
One of the great strengths of The European Tour is its ability to embrace both old and new elements of golf and that aspect is highlighted perfectly again this week when the Nissan Irish Open - one of the oldest established tournaments in Europe - takes place on one of the newest courses in the country.
World Ranking Points
Eriksson Top of the Klas in Ireland
While Nick Dougherty was notching up his first victory on The European Tour in January, Klas Eriksson was laid low at home in Sweden, stricken by a particularly debilitating virus. Four months on, at Carton House Golf Club in Co Kildare, the Swede was at least fit to compete with the Englishman on an equal footing in the first round of the Nissan Irish Open.
Dodd Swoops Late to Snatch the Lead in Nissan Irish Open
Welshman Stephen Dodd illuminated an overcast day at Carton House Golf Club, finishing with a dazzling birdie at the last to wrest the halfway lead from Englishmen Nick Dougherty and David Howell, another Welshman, Bradley Dredge and Swede Pelle Edberg in the Nissan Irish Open.
