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?

David Higgins posted a moving day one-under par 71 to jump up 4 places into a share of ninth ahead of the final round at the Titleist and FootJoy PGA Professional Championship in England.

After firing successive 69’s over the first two days at Hunstanton, at minus-seven, the Waterville professional incredibly finds himself a full 14 shots off Alastair Forsyth’s runaway lead, with the 43-year old former European Tour player 11 strokes clear of second place at a lofty 21-under par.

For Higgins’ part in proceedings, he proved the only Irishman to advance past the 36-hole cut mark with Glasson’s Colm Moriarty and Evolve Coaching’s Michael McGeady both falling one shot shy of the minus-one qualifying number.

Meanwhile, Old Conna’s Neil O’Briain (+1), Douglas’ David Barry (+2), Northern Ireland’s Cameron Clarke (+2), Glenlo Abbey’s Gary Madded (+5) and Limerick’s Tim Rice (+7) were also headed for home earlier than hoped.

The PGA’s flagship tournament finishes tomorrow and although Forysyth may have first place sewn up and the £10,000 that goes with it, the remaining £68,000 prize fund means there’s still plenty to play for with Higgins just three strokes off second place.
