Kearney, Turner hoping for Asian fireworks

IRISH hopefuls Niall Kearney and Niall Turner failed to hit the heights in the third round of the Asian Tour Qualifying School at the Imperial Lakeview & Springfield Royal CC, in Hua Hin, Thailand.

Both, however, managed to make the cut and good performances in today's final round could yet see them earn their playing rights for the coming season.

Kearney shot his third 72 on the trot, while Turner recorded a disappointing 76 for a total of 217, which was right on the cut mark.

• Ben Crane moved into the joint-lead in the Humana Challenge at La Quinta CC with an impressive second round of 63. He was joined at the top of the field by David Toms after he carded a second-round 65.
