Sharvin knocking on the door again in Brabazon Trophy
Ardglass’ Cormac Sharvin has been threatening to pull off a win for several weeks. Now he has a chance to finally do it after a five under par 67 gave him a one-stroke lead heading into Saturday’s final round of the Brabazon Trophy at Notts Golf Club.
Dunbar snatches second in Brabazon Trophy as Raymond wobbles
Dunbar and Whitson lurking at Brabazon
He might have finished boigey-bogey but Alan Dunbar gave his Walker Cup chances another huge boost when he fired six birdies in a three under 68 to keep leader Neil Raymond in his sights at the halfway stage of the Brabazon Trophy.
The talented Rathmore man is Raymond’s (68) nearest challenger, just two strokes adrift on two-under par at Burnham and Berrow in Somerset (Scores).
Watch out too for Mourne’s Reeve Whitson, whose one-over 72 left him tied for third with Peterhead’s Philip McLean and just seven shots behind.
Dunbar back on track at Brabazon Trophy
Rathmore’s Alan Dunbar bounced back from some recent indifferent performances to lie just two shots off the lead after the opening round of the Brabazon Trophy in brutal conditions Burnham and Barrow.
Bidding for a place in September’s Walker Cup side to face the USA at Royal Aberdeen, the 21-year old Ulsterman opened with a one-over par 72 to finish the opening day alone in second place behind Corhampton’s Neil Raymond with Mourne’s Reeve Whitson a shot further back in joint third.
It was a day to forget, however, for West of Ireland and Irish Close champion Paul Cutler who shot an eight-over 79.
