Sharvin thrilled as he stays in contention at Irish Open

Northern Ireland's Cormac Sharvin is delighted as he hits a one-under-par 69 in tough conditions to stay in contention in the Irish Open at Lahinch.

"I'm very pleased. It was super tough out there today," said the 26-year-old, who is having a good season on the second-tier European Challenge Tour where he lies 12th in the rankings.

Sharvin's five-under-par total left him four behind clubhouse leader, South Africa Zander Lombard midway through Friday's second round.
