Doherty extends lead over Young

CIARAN Doherty put more space between himself and his nearest rival Mark Young in the race for the Cleveland Srixon Northern Order of Merit title in a close encounter in the Prestbury Open.

The Bury ace posted 70 and 71, one-under-par all told, to beat his Lancashire teammate from Longridge by a shot.

That  left Doherty 105 points ahead of county champion Young, round in 72 and 70,  who is making a concerted bid to win the merit crown for a record sixth time before joining the professional ranks later in the year.

 

SCORES (Par 71): 141 Ciaran Doherty (Bury) 70 71; 142 Mark Young (Longridge) 72 70, James McCormick (Styal) 70 72; 143 Josh Garside (Prestbury) 72 71, Gareth Bradley (Bramhall) 72 71; 144 Christopher Chilton (Birchwood) 74 70, David Peel (Stockport) 68 76; 145 Steve Bryan (Bolton Old Links) 76 69; 146 Sam Prince (Altrincham) 72 74, Ross Palin (Vicars Cross) 72 74, Paul McFerran (Childwall) 71 75; 147 Alex Elliott (Prestbury) 74 73.
