MENS HOME INTERNATIONALS - Scots lose to Ireland on o[pening day

Scotland badly missed Bradley Neil and Grant Forrest - who failed to make the match-play stages of the US amateur championships - on the first day of the men's home internationals at Southerndown Golf Club in South Wales, on Wednesday 13th August.

Ayrshire's Jack McDonald, playing with Graeme Robertson, lost his morning foursomes by 3 & 2 and in the afternoon singles was defeated by 2 & 1
