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.

JESSICA Carty made full use of ‘home’ advantage to the win the Ulster Women’s Championship at a wet and windy Belvoir Park GC.
The 18-year-old student held off the challenge from Lurgan’s Niamh McSherry to claim her first ‘senior’ title by 4&3.
“It was a tough week with Belvoir playing very long so I think a wee bit of local knowledge was important,” said the Irish international.
Carty’s home club is actually Holywood GC, famous as the breeding ground for one Rory McIlroy, but she also retains a membership at Belvoir.
With a small field, less than 30 entrants, Carty, who won the Irish Girls’ Championship last year, entered the tournament as one of the favourites alongside Louise Coffey (Malone), Laura Grant (Lisburn) and experienced international Lucy Simpson (Massereene).
Having qualified in third place, she beat Zoe Allen (Lurgan), Niamh Ward (Lurgan) and then Chloe Weir (Shandon Park) on the 19th in the semi-finals to book her place in the final against McSherry.
“The matches against Niamh and Chloe were tough. I didn’t play that well against Chloe in the semi-final but I just hung in to finally beat her,” added Jessica who will take up a golf scholarship at the University of Denver in the autumn.
“In the final I turned it around and played some of my best golf of the week. I think I was two under when the match finished.”
