Ross Cameron holds a two-shot lead going into the final day of The Galgorm Castle Northern Ireland Open.

The event, which is being held in association with Ulster Bank, features more than 150 players and is the fifth tournament of the 2011 PGA EuroPro Tour campaign.

Cameron is in his second season on Tour and will claim his best ever finish if he comes higher than the tied eighth spot he occupied at Slaley Hall in Northumberland last August.

He began day two with a three-shot lead and, although he saw his advantage cut by one, he still leads the race for the £10,000 top prize.

Cameron never looked like repeating his heroics of Wednesday when he shot -9 (63) as he made three birdies and two bogeys in a steady, if unspectacular, round.

Four of the top five in the Order of Merit are well-placed for more success as Graeme Clark (Doncaster), Chris Hanson (Woodsome Hall, Huddersfield), Stuart Archibald and James Busby (The Shropshire) are all in the top ten.

Order of Merit leader Clark is currently second, Hanson and Busby are tied third, while Archibald is one of five players in tied sixth.

Scotland’s Shaun McAllister (Craigielaw, East Lothian) dragged himself into contention with a fine round of -4 (68) that included birdies on three of the last four holes and he joined Hanson and Busby on -7 overall.

The best rounds of the second day came from Barrie Trainor (Mayobridge, County Down) and Chris Kelly (Cawder, Glasgow), who both had scores of -5 to safely make the cut.

A total of 54 players qualified for the final day’s play, which will begin at 8am. All the action from Galgorm Castle is being filmed and a two-hour highlights package will be shown on Sky Sports on Wednesday, June 13.

The top five players on the money list at the end of the season will advance to the Challenge Tour and be only one step away from playing alongside Europe’s elite.
