Jonathan Caldwell is just two shots back ahead of today’s final round of the Eagle Orchid Scottish Masters.

The Clandeboye professional followed a stunning opening 65 with a rock solid two-under par 69 that included three birdies and just a single dropped shot to trail Scot Daniel Young at eight-under par.

The Northern Irishman collected a podium finish on EuroPro duty last week and sitting outright second now and three clear of third spot, it will be up to Caldwell to lead the chasing pack to a potential ‘W’.

Meanwhile, West Cliff’s Brendan McCarroll is not without hope either, though he trails leader Young by six at Spey Valley.

McCarroll finds himself in a tie for 7th spot at four-under par after firing five birdies in a one-under par 70 in round two.

Limerick’s Tim Rice returned a round of 70 of his own to move into a tie for 21st at one-over par. That’s two shots better than Royal Dublin’s Niall Kearney who sadly went in reverse after adding a 76 to his opening 69.

A mixed bag of weather saw those beyond the four-over par mark miss out on Friday’s final round.

Ballymena’s Dermot McElroy (+5), Kilkenny’s Luke Donnelly (+6), Headfort’s Joe Dillon (+7), Whitehead’s John Ross Galbraith (+8), Cork’s John Hickey (+11), Shannon’s Daniel Brennan (+11) and Castlebar’s Declan Loftus (+14) all fell short of the passing grade.
