Oscar still hoping for top prize in Reid Trophy

ENGLAND’S Conor Gough holds a three shot lead going into today’s final round of the Reid Trophy after a breezy day at Porters Park Golf Club in Hertfordshire – but Delamere Forest’s Oscar Doran is on his tail!

Gough, 13, played round in one-over par 71 today and is two-under for the English U14 boys’ open championship – and liking the experience.

“I enjoy seeing my name on the top of the leader board,” said Gough, from Stoke Park in Buckinghamshire. “Some people don’t, but I like it.”

This is an event which attracts a thoroughly international field and Gough is being chased by Ireland’s Josh Black and South Africa’s Casey Jarvis, who have moved into a tie for second place on one-over par.

Doran, three shots back, after  compiled 73 in the breeziest part of the day, said:“The wind picked up quite a bit and it definitely affected the scoring,” he said.

. “My scrapping was really good when my ball striking went off a bit. I had some good up and downs and then my striking improved again.”

Today his plan is simple: “I shall go at every flag and get as many birdies as I can.”

NB: The Reid Trophy will be held at Manchester Golf Club next year.
