Leseur still in contention despite 76
Kenny Leseur remains firmly in the hunt for honours going into today’s third and final round of the Optimist International Junior Golf Championships at the Trump National Doral course in Miami.
The Bermudian is tied for second in the boys’ 14-15 division along with American Weston Jones at four-over-par 147, one shot behind leader Nashawn Tyson.
He started yesterday’s penultimate round in a three-way tie for first at one under, but slipped one spot on the leaderboard after carding a four-over 76.
Leseur is fresh off competing at the Saugahatchee Junior Tournament in Alabama last week when he finished tied for second after the two rounds, three strokes behind the winner, Brock Blais, from Georgia.
This tournament contains a strong field of golfers from 42 states and 27 countries.
In the girls’ 13-14 division, Josefina Rendo (145), of Argentina, leads compatriot Maria Cabanillas (146) by one shot, with Thailand’s Alisa Inprasit a further three shots back in third.
The top 70 golfers plus ties play the final round today at the Blue Monster Course with the rest of the field competing in the Clash of Challengers Tournament on the Golden Palm course.
