Tom Haylock and James Ruebotham share the lead in The Stoke by Nayland Championship 2009 at nine under par – but official bookmakers Sky Bet are wary of Steve Surry.
Order of Merit leader Surry (Cumberwell Park – pictured) is one stroke behind the leading pair and joins Haylock (Ground Construction Ltd) at 7/2 to win the tournament, which concludes tomorrow (Thursday July 2). Surry carded a magnificent nine under 63 to follow his one over opening round, while Ruebotham (Welwyn Garden City GC) is 9/2 for victory after a round of 64 to share the lead.
Australian Chris Gaunt and Scotsman Mark Kerr (Golf Fit Ltd/Bathgate GC) are also eight under going into the final round and are 5/1 and 20/1 for victory respectively, while Kieran Staunton (Woodcote Park – 10/1) and Jeremy Kavanagh (Stoke Park – 20/1) are two shots behind at seven under.
Nicky Harris (Whitefield GC, six under) won at Stoke by Nayland last year and is 18/1 to repeat that success while Jamie Moul (Stoke by Nayland) is four shots off the lead and 28/1 to lift the trophy on home soil.
