Hugh Cahill is joined by John McHenry to present live coverage of the first round of the European Tour event, which takes place at Ballyliffin Golf Club in County Donegal. The lead was shared at the end of day one last year by Benjamin Herbert of France and America's Daniel Im on eight-under. Meanwhile, the English duo of Oliver Fisher and Matthew Southgate were one stroke further back alongside eventual champion Jon Rahm of Spain. It was a highly successful 2007 for Rahm, who had already claimed the Farmers Insurance Open on the PGA Tour in January, and also went on to win one of the European Tour's flagship events, the World Tour Championship in Dubai.
