On Friday morning, Dunne completed his first lap of the race that had been postponed due to weather before realizing the situation. On Friday morning, Dunne talked about the chaos in an interview with RTÉ Radio 1’s Morning Ireland.
“I’m just not sure if everyone knows,” he said.
“I made three holes on the first lap. Dunne went to bed very early last night and got up very early this morning. I didn’t really look at my phone. When I came in I turned on my phone. I got everyone asked me whether I went to the airport or stayed to play then I started to study it.
Dunne said the official stated that the game will go ahead as scheduled and that players who withdraw will not face sanctions.
“They just said they still believe a tournament bubble is a safe place.
“We can withdraw without any fines or fines or anything like that we didn’t get their latest news. But they just said that if we want to withdraw.”
This event is the first event on the schedule of the DP World Tour (formerly the European Tour). Kearney has the best position in the foursome. Under par, and Caldwell has been at the two-hole level since the first round. Dunne shot 15 shots high and 3 shots, and Sharvin was 7 shots over par.
