Kenny Leseur off the pace at Torrey Pines

Kenny Leseur found the going tough during the penultimate round of the IMG Junior World Championship at Torrey Pines South Course in San Diego, California, yesterday.

The Bermudian, who attends the International Junior Golf Academy in Florida, carded a seven-over 78 that included seven bogeys.

That left Leseur tied for 38th in the boys 15 to 18 division at 11 over 224 for the tournament with one round left to play.

The promising amateur was three over at the turn after carding bogeys at Nos 1, 3 and 6.

His struggles then continued on the back nine as he carded additional bogeys at Nos 13, 14, 16 and 17 coming in to relinquish further ground on the leaderboard.

Yesterday’s round was in stark contrast to a superb one-under 70 that Leseur shot the previous day, which included two eagles and as many birdies.

Gavin Aurilia, from Phoenix, Arizona, leads the boys 15 to 18 division by two shots heading into today’s final round of the 54-hole tournament.

Leseur had momentum heading into the event having finished tied for third, only one shot off the lead, at the Future Champions of Golf International Championship last week at the Singing Hills Willow Glen in San Diego.

He joined an exclusive group after becoming the eighth-youngest player to compete in a PGA Tour event at age 15 at the inaugural PGA Bermuda Championship at Port Royal Golf Course in 2019.
