Golfer Shaw’s high and low

Published 19/09/2008

Gareth Shaw began with a bang but ended with something of a whimper as he continued his eventful start to life as a professional on the European Challenge Tour.

Just nine holes into his first round at the Kazakhstan Open he was five under par and threatening the top of the leaderboard.

Sadly, though, he could not continue that sort of from, dropping two shots on his way back to the clubhouse but at three under par, he is still within three shots of the lead held by Scotland’s Steven O’Hara.

Derry man Michael McGeady finished with a two under round of 70, while Michael Hoey had a 73 to sit on one over overnight. The leading Irishman is Colm Moriarty who is just a shot off the lead on five under after an opening 67.

Meanwhile, Walker Cup star Jonny Caldwell is well on tack to clinch his place at the second stage of the European Tour Qualifying School.

The Clandeboye player shot a second round 69 yesterday to lie in a share of 20th place at the Oxfordshire Club in England.
