After finishing his morning round with three straight bogeys) 17 year old Kevern trailed 7 others at the halfway stage. Undeterred Jack shot a 1 under par best second round of the day to move to the top of the field on countback from Gloucestershire County Men's Team player Louis Ross (Long Ashton) and 3rd placed Enzo Cryer (Bristol & Clifton).
