The Kerry London Championship’s second round on the EuroPro Tour must be a low one for the Scots not too far off the lead at Burhill Golf Club.
Callum Trahan from Gleneagles, who is three behind the leader Tim Rice of Ireland, opened with a two-under-par 70 to lead the Scottish charge.
Joining Trahan on two-under-par is Ross Kellett from Kingsfield Golf Centre, a round of three or four-under today should see the pair among the leaders at the Kerry London Championship come the end of play.
'A special mention goes to QPR midfielder Gary O’Neil, who has put himself in contention to make the 36-hole cut.'
Lloyd Saltman is a shot further back and lies just outside the top-20. The elder of the Saltman brothers, missed the cut last week but is well placed to improve this time around.
His younger brother Elliot had a measured round of even-par, and is joined by fellow Scots Neil Fenwick from Dunbar and Malcolm Isaacs of Newmachar Golf Club, all three need an under-par round to remain in the hunt.
A special mention goes to QPR midfielder Gary O’Neil, who has put himself in contention to make the 36-hole cut - the top-50 and ties – after an even-par first round.
The leaders at Burnhill Golf Club
Irishman Tim Rice and England’s Sam Forgan, pictured above, shot opening 67s yesterday to lead the field on five-under-par.
'The Kerry London Championship leaderboard is dominated by Englishmen.'
A group of five are placed just one behind on four-under, with Billy Fowles and Graeme Clark level-par three holes into their second rounds.
In all, the Kerry London Championship leaderboard is dominated by Englishmen. Of the 25 plus players to shoot under-par, only eight of them aren’t on home soil. That may change if the Scots can get amongst the birdies.
