Snooker player Murphy in Open qualifier

Snooker player Shaun Murphy describes playing in a regional qualifying round for the Open Championship as "one of the best experiences of my life".

The 2005 world champion was unable to progress to final qualifying after shooting a 12-over-par 84 at County Louth.

But Murphy, who plays off scratch but describes himself as a "social golfer", was hugely impressed by the Irish links course.
