Play in the first round of the Northern Ireland Open will begin at 13:30 BST after a delay because of a waterlogging at Galgorm Castle.

Heavy rain at the Ballymena venue led to Challenge Tour organisers announcing a six-hour delay in play getting under way on Thursday.

The field includes tournament ambassador Michael Hoey and 13-year-old golfing prodigy Tom McKibben.

The teenager received an invite to play in the County Antrim event.
