The Tension Mounts as Second Round Approaches End
With Round 1 Julien Brun of France still out on the course and Jeff Hopkins of Skerries with an aggregate of 144 (Barassie – 71 and Dundonald 73) has set the target in the Clubhouse, our young pretenders are on the edge of their seats waiting to see if they will qualify for the match-play part of the competition. The top 64, and ties, will back tomorrow again to take on all the challenges Barassie has to throw at them.
2. Think of a Number
Just what will the qualifying score be? At 4 o’clock 64 players and ties were sitting on a score of 156, no too unreasonable given the fact that the wind has strengthened and moved direction to the northwest. Members of Kilmarnock Barassie will tell you that is the most difficult to achieve a good score, especially when the pressure of gaining that all-elusive qualifying target is always in your mind.
