Improved Leseur ‘can be proud’

Getting better: Leseur’s second round was far better than his first

Kenny Leseur was eight shots better in his second round at the Junior Open Championship, but still missed the cut at Kilmarnock (Barassie) Golf Club.

The Bermuda golfer carded an 11-over-par 84 to finish 30 over for the two days, six shots adrift of the cut line.

However, Chris Brough, of the Bermuda Junior Golf Association, said Leseur could be proud of his performance and said the lessons learnt this week would prove invaluable in the future.

“He [Leseur] still struggled to hit fairways and greens, but his short game was much better, helping him to grind out this score,” Brough said. “He didn’t lose any balls today, which helped limit damage from wayward shots.

“Unfortunately, Kenny’s looser shots came on the scoring holes so he was unable to take advantage of them. The experience this week has been invaluable and the lessons learned about preparation and course management should pay dividends in future international events.”

Leseur carded seven bogeys and two double bogeys yesterday, with most of the damage coming on the front nine.
