Seapoint’s Dylan Keating stamped his authority on the Munster Boys Amateur Open Championship with a stunning seven-under par showing on day two at Ballybunion.

The Irish Boys international fired six birdies and an eagle in a round of 65 that has seen him explode into a seven shot advantage ahead of the final day in the Kingdom.

Keating was exemplary in his play, particularly on the par-5’s where he played all five long obstacles in a combined six-under par.


At level par for the tournament, he has left the field in his wake with Roscommon’s Thomas Higgins a distant second at seven-over par despite posting a very respectable round of 73.

Faithlegg’s Rory Fives (81,71) is a shot further back in a tie for third at eight-over alongside Connemara’s Luke O’Neill (79,73), Edmonstown’s Liam Abom (79,73) and Muskerry’s Fionn Hickey (76,76).

Only five players managed to break par on day two of the 54-hole championship.
