Gordon Stevenson (Whitecraigs), pictured, is the leading Scot after the first round of the Irish men's open amateur stroke-play championship at a windy Royal Dublin Golf Club links today.
He shot a two-over-par 74 to be lying joint eighth in the field field.
Walker Cup team place contender Kris Nicol (Fraserburgh) had a 75 to be joint 12th.
Clubmate Jordan Findlay, the Scottish Alliance champion and beaten Scottish amateur championship finalist at Gullane last summer, is on 76.
Peterhead's Philip McLean has a fight on his hands to survive the halfway cut after an 82 while Royal Aberdeen's Scott Larkin had a disastrous round of 91

Robin Kind of the Netherlands was the only man to break par on day 1 of the Irish Amateur Open Championship at The Royal Dublin.
Kind owed his success to his performance on the back nine – by far the harder in a testing easterly wind – as he covered the second half of his round in two-under 35, highlighted by an eagle two at the short par-four 16th.
Ian Brennan (Greenore) and Welshman Rhys Pugh share second place on level-par 72, with Greystones teenager Paul Dunne, the defending champion Alan Dunbar (Rathmore) and Carlow’s John Greene all on one over after 73s.
Galway’s Eddie McCormack, Banbridge’s Rory Leonard and Scot Gordon Stevenson are a further shot back after two-over 74s.
