Cormac Sharvin fired a sizzling six-under par 65 to burst into contention ahead of the final day of the Magical Kenya Open presented by Absa.

The Ardglass professional carded six birdies in a bogey-free round of golf to move inside the top-10 at eight-under par at Karen Country Club ahead of Sunday’s final round.

In the process he leap-frogged compatriot, Michael Hoey, who himself enjoyed a positive morning on moving day.

The five-time European tour winner returned a two-under par 69 to move back inside the top-20 at four-under par.

Unfortunately yesterday’s 36-hole cut saw Ireland’s two other competing stars, Gavin Moynihan and Robin Dawson miss out on the weekend action.

Moynihan missed out by two shots at three-over par and is now looking forward to some time off after a busy few weeks globetrotting.

“A break couldn’t have come at a better time,” he tweeted. “Tough few weeks away. Game is there, just not scoring well at all. Practice to be done.”

It’s back to the drawing board too for Tramore’s Dawson after a disastrous 82 all but ended his hopes on day one. With the pressure off, Dawson showed signs of what he can do with a three-under par 68 restoring some pride in an otherwise disappointing week for the fledgling pro.

With holes to play, Adri Arnaus and Louis de Jager lead the way in Kenya at 13-under par.
