ROSS Kellett has a member of Great Britain & Ireland’s winning 2011 Walker Cup team at Royal Aberdeen in his sights heading into the final round of the PGA EuroPro Tour’s Matchroom Championship at The Belfry.

Englishman Jack Senior, whose only defeat in four matches in the Granite City came in the first-day singles against Jordan Spieth, takes a three-shot lead into the final circuit at the Ryder Cup venue after carding a five-under 67 in the second round.

Former Ryder Cup player Paul Broadhurst is leading the chase, a shot ahead of another Englishman in William Harrold, with Kellett the top Scot in Sutton Coldfield – sharing fifth spot and with five shots to make up on Senior.

A winner on the Alps Tour in his short professional career and now attached to Kingsfield Golf Centre at Linlithgow, Kellett shot level par in his second round to sit two-under. “In the mix tomorrow and looking forward to it,” he wrote on Twitter.

Also hoping to taste victory today – for the second time in less than a week in his case – is newly-crowned Scottish Boys’ champion Ewen Ferguson. He’s sitting fifth, having shot rounds of 74 and 69, with 36 holes to go in the McEvoy Trophy at Copt Heath in Solihull.
