Open Championship – Top-10 Greatest Hits – #2

In 1998, a little known English amateur named Justin Rose very nearly pulled off one of the greatest shocks the sport has ever seen. Tomorrow we reveal our number one - any guesses for what claims our top spot?

Conor Purcell finds himself trailing the lead by eight shots ahead of the final day at a difficult MENA Tour assignment in Aqaba.

The Jordan to Jordan tournament has been played through a stiff breeze at Ayla GC with the Portmarnock professional grinding out an even par 72 on Tuesday to move inside the top-20 with 18 holes to play.

Purcell, who last week confirmed a partnership with Carr Golf as he gets to grips with his rookie season on Tour, traded two birdies with two bogeys to remain at two-over par, good enough for a tie for 17th though trailing Scotland’s Ryan Lumsden who leads by two strokes at six-under par.

A 36-hole cut fell on Tuesday but that proved no concern to Conor O’Rourke and Rory McNamara who joined Purcell in the final round draw.

Naas pro O’Rourke finds himself sharing 22nd at four-over par after returning rounds of 75 and 73 while McNamara is a shot further adrift after signing for scores of 75 and 74.

O’Rourke’s round was a real rollercoaster with five birdies undone by four dropped shots and a double while McNamara managed two birdies and four bogeys in his effort.

The cut fell at nine-over par.
