Colin Edgar maintains lead through the storms

as Chloe Goadby delivers round of the day
The second round of the 11th SSS/BUCS Dundonald Tournament was played in very challenging weather conditions which tested the field to the limit.
With the top 12 women and top 30 men making the cut at the end of the day, competition was fierce to secure a chance at earning valuable points towards Tour Finals qualification.
In the men’s competition, it was a Stirling player who again had the lowest score of the day, this time James Wilson (Stirling) shooting a 74 to move himself up the leaderboard and into fourth place heading into the final day.
Overnight leader Colin Edgar (Stirling) shot a 77 to maintain both his place at the top of the leaderboard but also his two-shot advantage over his nearest competitors.
While Chris Maclean (Stirling) was not able to maintain the pressure on Edgar, Chris Low (Abertay) backed up his 73 with a   76 to move into second alongside Bjorn Bojesen (St. Andrews), who moved up from third, thanks to a solid Edgar-matching 77. With only three shots separating the top six golfers, it will be all to play for during tomorrow’s final round.
The women’s leaderboard was shaken up by the tough conditions and by the outstanding round of the day, Chloe Goadby (Stirling) shooting a two over 74 to move to the top of the standings, alongside first round leader Gemma Batty (Stirling).
While Batty struggled early on, sitting at nine over after eight holes, she played the remaining 10 holes to par to ensure that she is level with Goadby heading into the final day.
Emma Hale (Glasgow Caledonian) shot an 82 to stay in touch with the leaders, only three shots back at 12 over.
With snow forecast overnight and further showers scheduled for Tuesday, it is likely to be the players who manage the conditions the best that will emerge with the titles at the end of tomorrow.
