Battling Webby right in the mix; GOLF.

NUNEATON-born Steve Webster led the Warwickshire trio after the opening round of the Irish Open at Royal Portrush yesterday with a fine 69 to stand four shots off the pace.

The 37-year-old started well with an eagle on the 2nd followed by a birdie on the 5th and though he dropped a shot at the next, he birdies at the ninth and tenth left him just four off the pace. A five on 12th pegged his progress but six pars to end left him tied 33rd Leamington-born Jamie Elson, teed off at the 10th, and saw three shots lost in his first five holes but like Webster he eagled the second and then birdies at the fifth and sixth got him into red figures but the roller coaster round saw him bogey with a regulation 72.

Nuneaton's Andy Sullivan showed his scrambling skills overcoming a dismal opening ten holes during which he carded five bogeys to finish on 73, eight shots adrift of leaders Gregory Bourdy and Jeev Milkha-Singh.
