Northern Irish trio lead The R&A Foundation Scholars Tournament 2013

Northern Irish trio Paula Grant, Tiarnan McLarnon and Cormac Sharvin lead the way going in to tomorrow’s final round of The R&A Foundation Scholars Tournament 2013.

Grant, the 2011 Irish Girls Champion, posted two excellent rounds of 68 in chilly conditions on the Eden Course in St Andrews for a total of 136 to take a four shot lead over her compatriot McLarnon, who opened with rounds of 72 and 68.

Two shots further back is fellow Northern Irish player Sharvin, who won the Northern Ireland Open Strokeplay Championship last year. The University of Stirling student carded rounds of 70 and 72 for a total of 142.

A clutch of five players are sitting on 143 including two-time winner of the women’s event Kelsey MacDonald, the former Scottish Girls Champion who started the year by winning an event on the Orange Blossom Tour in Florida, and her fellow Stirling players Craig Howie and Mathias Eggenberger.
