Seven shots is a lot of ground to make up in one round but Craig Lee is sure to have a crack at the leaders over Thursday's final round of this week’s PGA EuroPro Tour event, the Stoke-by-Nayland Championship at the Suffolk venue near Colchester.
The Aspire Golf Centre tour pro, pictured right, winner of the £10,000 first prize at Bovey Castle a few weeks back, followed up his opening 71 with a six-under-par 66 for 137 to be joint 11th, seven behind the two-stroke leader on 130, Irishman Brendan McCarroll (67-63).
Lee birdied the third, fifth, eighth, ninth, 1oth, 11th and 14th, dropping just one shot, at the 12th.
Young Shaun McAllister (Craigielaw) has played the first two rounds well for a pair of two-under-par 70s – now, from joint 16th place, he has to finish on a high, which he has not really done yet on the tour.
McAllister had birdies at the first, second, fifth,1 4th and 19th, dropping shots at the eighth, 11th and 17th.
Other Scots qualifiers for the last round charge were Kevin McAlpine (67 for 141), Paul Doherty (75 for 141), Jason McCreadie (70 for 143), Steven Mackie (72 for 144), John Henry (2 for 144).
The top 50 players and ties qualified with aggregates of 145 or better.
Newmachar’s Martin Lawrence missed out by one with a75 for 146, the same total as nother Scot, Colin Goudie, who slumped from 68 to 78.
Zack Saltman (Aegon) is still missing more cuts than he makes. He failed in this one with a 72 for 147, the same total as Ellon’s Ross Cameron (76) and Carnoustiie’s Keir McNicoll (71).
