Reid Trophy – Day Two: Kim surges eight shots clear

Kris Kim will take a commanding eight shot lead into the final day’s play as he bids to claim a wire-to-wire victory in the Reid Trophy.

The Walton Heath golfer followed up an opening round of 67 with a stunning score of 65 at Porters Park Golf Club in Hertfordshire.

Kim’s round included five birdies and no bogeys – an extremely impressive performance from the 13-year-old England regional squad player.

Two players are tied for second spot on a tally of level par – Ayden Knight (pictured above) from Tidworth and Thorndon Park’s Charlie Croker.
