The Irish Open was only underway minutes before it had its first drama when experienced referee John Paramor disqualified a player for arriving on the first tee 30 seconds after his allocated tee time.

Rising star Neville Winslot had been on the practice ground an hour before his 7.30am tee time when he suddenly remembered he had completely forgotten his ego.

"I knew something felt wrong when I wasn't acting like Lord God almighty himself" said the world number 967. "I made eye contact with a marshal which caused a burning sensation in my head but it wasn't until I found myself acknowledging a spectator who said 'good shot' that it suddenly dawned on me that I had left my f*cking ego on the bed in my hotel room," Winslot told reporters.
"I ran back to the hotel room as quick as I could but, not having my ego, I was slowed down by having to say "hello" and smile to people.  When I got to the room I just grabbed my ego and ran as fast as I could to the teebox with my usual downtrodden scowl on my face but it was too late."
"I should have known when I found myself laughing along with my caddie and thinking he was a nice guy that I hadn't brought my ego," said Winslot. "Of course now that I have my ego back I've sacked the bastard. It's all his fault."
