Leaderboard

Davidson (Llanwern Golf Club) shot a stunning bogey-free second round of 65 (-7) on the blue course, after carding a solid opening round of 71 (-1) on the red course.

“I played very solid today on the blue course, I was able to approach my round aggressively today and took advantage of the par 5’s out there; I felt like I could let go as the blue course is more open.”: said the 21-year old.

Discussing the bogey-free round he said: “It wasn’t really on my mind during, I just kept trying to birdie holes where possible. But, when you mark the card at the end of the day and it is bogey-free it is a great feeling.”

Isle of Man’s Tom Gandy (Rowany Golf Club) and Stuart Grehan are the Welshman’s closest rival, after sharing second position -6, with the latter carding a fantastic -5 (68) second round on the blue course.

Four golfers in the form of Daniel Whitby-Smith (Whittington Heath Golf Club), Luke Jackson (Lindrick Golf Club), James Freeman (Retford Golf Club) and Neil Henderson (The Renaissance Club) shot the joint-lowest rounds of the day on the red course (68).
