Englishman Gane-s Advantage at Beko Classic1 min read

Posted on: 5th Dec 2014

Round 1 of the 2014 Beko Classic hosted by Gloria Hotels & Resorts, Turkey, got underway today and it was the PGA of Great Britain & Ireland’s Chris Gane who led the way with a nine-under par 63 at Gloria’s New Course.

Gane’s play across his first 18 holes was superb with a four-under front nine followed up by five birdies on his back nine to end the first round one ahead.

In second place lies 2011 Open Championship winner, Darren Clarke, who’s back nine of one-under was solid but a front nine consisting of seven birdies in a row to go out in 30 was plenty to get him to eight-under par (64) for the tournament.

Three players are tied for third place on six-under par (66): major Champion, John Daly, European Tour Professional, Kevin Phelan, and 2010 Beko Classic Champion, Raymond Russell.  Daly and Phelan each made seven birdies and one bogey whilst Russell kept a clean sheet with four birdies and one eagle on Gloria Old Course’s ninth hole.

In the Team Pro-Am event it was the home team of ‘Gloria’, made up of Fahir Telli, Dr. Nurettin Katiranci and Hatice Cetindere, that came out on top through Round 1 with 92 points assisted by Professional, Joakim Rask.

In second place are the GOLFIST team of Esra Demirsoy, Ian Randell and Angus Mackenzie, joined by defending champion, Robert Coles, with 89 points.

Round 2 begins at 09:30am (GMT+2), 5th December 2014.  For full Round 1 results visit: Tournament Hub Page.
