Qualifying scores over the Dunluce and Valley links have been quite varied but Caolan Rafferty was best qualifier on -10 par for the 2 rounds and carded a magnificent -7 par over the new Dunluce layout.
Both courses were played from the medal positions but for the remainder of the week Dunluce is set up from all Championship tees, bar the new 7th.
All surfaces have been mown daily with greens also ironed.
Dunluce greens were stimping at 10′ at the beginning of the week and 10′ 5″ this morning.
The weather forecast is favourable for the rest of the week with some light breeze for the final on friday.
