Kearney within touching distance of game-changing win

Niall Kearney is just one shot off the pace as he chases a potentially game-changing win at the EuroPro Tour’s PDC Championship at Studley Wood Golf Club.

The Royal Dublin professional has underperformed this term but having opened with a four-under par 69, he consolidated that good start with a two-under par 71 today to be perfectly placed heading into the final day.

At six-under par, Kearney’s in a tie for third on a bunched leaderboard but he’ll be hoping to put his wealth of experience to use to get it over the line tomorrow.

Meanwhile Clandeboye’s Jonathan Caldwell’s remains in touch too just a shot further back after adding a 71 of his own to his opening round of 70. Caldwell finds himself in a share of seventh spot as he looks to edge ever closer to Challenge Tour graduation next month by breaking into the top-5 on the Race to Desert Springs standings.

Whitehead’s John Ross Galbraith ground out one-under par 72 to scrape over the cut line on the number at even par while Old Conna’s Neil O’Briain was unlucky to miss out by one.

Marco Penge and Nick Marsh hold a one-shot lead going into the final day in Oxfordshire after a storming second day.

Penge (Golf at Goodwood) posted a second round of 68 (-5) to move into contention and clubhouse leader going into the final day with Nick Marsh (Huddersfield Golf Club) who went around in 70 (-3) to be on seven under heading into the last day.

Fifty players plus ties made the cut which remained at level par with the afternoon players having the better of the conditions. Entry is free to watch at Studley Wood Golf Club with ample parking available.

Highlights of The PDC Championship will be shown on Sky Sports Golf, 17 September at 20:00.
