William Harrold shot a second round of 66 (-4) to keep the rest of the field at arm’s-length going into the final day of The Motocaddy Masters at Leven Links by one shot.
Harrold (Sheringham Golf Club) kept it steady on the front nine going out in 32 before into the back nine where he had to contend with two bogies but bounced back to be one clear of Robbie Busher and Mitch Waite in Fife at -12.
Busher (Rushmore Golf Club) will play in the final group for a second week in a row after a second round of 63 for seven under par which includes coming in for 31 (-5) including birdies at 11, 12, and 15 plus an eagle at the 13th. Waite (Filton Golf Club) has been the trailblazer this season with two wins and he underlined his strong showings of late signing for a day of eight under par for 62 with five birdies on the back nine. He will go into the final day on the back of first, second, third, and first-place finishes in his last four tournaments.
Josh Hilleard posted a round of 64 (-6) to move to solo fourth and within two shots of Harrold whilst Tippity Green Golf Club’s Jack South kept pace to go to nine under from a round of 67 to be tied fifth. South is joined by previous Leven Gold Medalist Kieran Cantley, Liam Murray, and Curtis Knipes.
