Lisburn’s Aaron Marshall is the new leader of the Bridgestone Boys International Order of Merit following a superb display at the Peter McEvoy Trophy.
While Aaron narrowly missed out on the title, finishing one shot behind the winner at Copt Heath, he scooped 70 order of merit points for his performance.
An opening round 67 gave Marshall the lead at the halfway stage. His title challenge only came unstuck during the closing stages of the final round. Bogeys at two of the last three holes put paid to his chances.
Athenry’s Allan Hill was next best of the Irish at the McEvoy Trophy, taking seventh place. Hill is now second in Bridgestone Boys International Order of Merit, 22 points behind the leader.
Odhran Maguire from Slieve Russell slips to third having previously been tied at the top with Edward Walsh (Mallow) and Luke O’Neill (Connemara).
In ladies golf, a pair of Ulster golfers are leading the way at the top of the ILGU Scratch Cup rankings following the most recent event at Cork GC.
Malone’s Louise Coffey claimed the Ford Cork Scratch Cup on a countback from Lauren Murray (Delgany) at the weekend.
Victory moved Louise up to second place in the overall rankings on 48pts, 10 points behind Paula Grant (Lisburn) who skipped the Cork event.
