There was anger and frustration from many players at venerable County Sligo Golf Club when high winds forced officials to abandon the second round of strokeplay qualifying for the West of Ireland Amateur Open. Rather than resume play on Sunday after the afternoon wave of 66 were unable to play on as winds gusting up to 47 miles per hour made the course unplayable, the Championship Committee opted to scrap all second rounds scores completely. Those who had played in the tougher afternoon conditions on day one felt they had been done a disservice, while those who were going well in the afternoon wave in round two were also peeved. The matchplay draw shows that just 19 of the 64 qualfiers came through from the tougher Friday afternoon conditions. He felt play should have been resumed on Sunday morning in the interest of fairness to both sides of the draw but with officials fearing mass no-shows by extending into Sunday morning, a drastic decision was taken.
