Kinsale’s John Murphy 

John Murphy stormed to the top of the leaderboard on day 2 of the Munster Students Championship, thanks to an excellent 68.  He’s now four shots clear of the field on 6 under par.  68 was a popular number in Cork Golf Club today, with both James McKeever and Cathal Butler posting 68’s.  Butler will disappointed despite tying the low round of the day, he was seven under before carding a triple bogey on the 17th.  The Kinsale man dusted himself off and recovered with a par on the 18th.  Butler recorded six birdies and an eagle, with one bogey and the triple in the impressive round.

Murphy’s 68 was less dramatic four birdies and a bogey on the front nine saw him on -3 at the turn.  He added a birdie on the 10th and shot par golf for the remaining eight holes.  The four hole cushion gives him a big advantage going into the final round, but there are some quality golfers in the chasing pack.  Monkstown’s Sean Desmond is tied for 5th on level par and James Sugrue is just inside the top twenty on +4.  Jack Howard (Fota Island) and Darren Hourihan (Douglas) both made it through to the final round on the cut mark (+6).  Kinsale’s Gary Ward just missed out on the wrong side of that mark.
