AYRSHIRE JUNIOR ORDER OF MERIT - Ryan Kennedy back on top with 10 events remaining

Ryan Kennedy (Irvine) is back in the lead in the chase for the 2023 Ayrshire Junior Order of Merit title, with 10 counting events remaining to be completed this season.

His runner up spot in the Ayrshire Boys' Championship at Largs recently moved him a mere 2.5 points ahead of Liam Moran (Irvine), who also gained points at Largs with his seventh place finish. 

Previous leader Sean Hillis (Kilmarnock Barassie) moved down to third place, though only ten points short of the leading total, while the new Ayrshire Boys Strokeplay Champion Scott Newman (Royal Troon) moved up to fourth place following his win at Largs.

Ryan Kennedy's absence from the Ayrshire Matchplay Championship this week gives others a chance to close the gap or potentially overtake his points total, although the other counting events at Turnberry and Ayr Belleisle this week will also be likely to have an influence on the order of merit standings.

Present positions in the Ayrshire Junior Order of Merit are:-
