Grogan Takes Charge at Thracian Cliffs2 min read


Posted on: 17th Jul 2015

After beginning the day in third place, PGA of Germany Professional, Jonathan Grogan, took the reigns in Round 2 carding a four-under 68 for 138 (-5) total and a lead of one shot going into the final round.

Round 2 of the 7th Vivacom BlackSeaRama Pro-Am took place at venue of the 2013 Volvo World Matchplay, Thracian Cliffs, a course that is known around the globe for its incredible views, layout and challenge.

But Grogan seized the opportunity early on with a birdie at the par-five second hole and followed it up with another at par-four seventh.  But he did not take his foot off the gas with three more birdies on the back nine until a sole bogey on the notoriously tricky par-three 18th hole.

“I started off great even though I was playing the holes against the wind,” explained Grogan.  “It’s a fantastically tough course anyway, but I just thought ‘get it round in level par’.  I managed to hole some birdie putts and a few par putts and thought it would be a bit easier coming back down wind…and I managed to get some close and hole a few.  The game plan for tomorrow is to just attack it!”

In second place is first round leader, Marco Bernardini (PGA of Italy), who found it a bit more of a struggle with four bogeys, two birdies and a two-over 74 for a four-under par total (139).  Standalone third place is the PGA of Greece’s, Panos Karantzias.

In the Team Pro-Am competition it was Richard Lane (PGA of Bulgaria) and his team of Andon Tushev, Liubomir Tushev and Krasimir Balakov who edged ahead after being in the four-way tie through the day before – 86 points (-14) and their first round 87 points gives them a combined 173 total (-29) and a three-point lead.
