Roos Rocks Aegean Pro-Am With Course Record2 min read

Posted on: 19th Jun 2015

South Africa’s Jake Roos has taken the lead through Round 1 of the 2015 Aegean Airlines Pro-Am after a course record-breaking 64 at Costa Navarino’s Bay Course propelled him to an early advantage.

Roos, winner of the Challenge Tour’s ‘Aegean Airlines Challenge Tour by Hartl Resort’ event in July 2014, got the 10th anniversary edition of the tournament underway in style with his seven-under par 64 that came during his first ever round at the course:

“I really enjoyed it out there – I didn’t play a practice round so it was the first time I saw it today and I liked the setup and the quick-fast, undulating greens,” explained Roos.  “The greens were very challenging in terms of the slopes – it’s not the longest course but is quite fun.  I made some nice putts so yeah I’m happy with today.”

A two-under par opening nine holes of 34 was only blemished by a single bogey on Roos’ third hole, however a five-under par 30 back nine with no dropped shots ensured a two shot lead heading into the second round of the Individual Professional competition.


In second place is local Costa Navarino-based PGA of Greece Member Professional, Adam Kritikos.  Again playing at the Bay Course, Kritikos completed his first round in 66 shots (-5) aided by no less than two eagles at the 7th and 18th holes.


Tied at third place are 2009 Aegean Airlines Pro-Am Champion, Paul Nilbrink (PGA of Norway), and three-time defending Champion, Nicolo Gaggero (PGA of Italy), each three-under par after both their 68s at the Bay and Dunes Courses respectively kept them well and truly in the mix.

In the Team Pro-Am competition, the lead is held by another local Costa Navarino favourite and PGA of Greece Member, Themis Ginis, and his team of John Paraschis, Yannis Criticos, and Nikos Koulis.

Their opening 88 points (-16) at the Bay Course edged them one point ahead of second place Itamar Cohen, and his amateurs, Guy Benhamou, Hezi Magan, and Yehudah Levy with 87 points (-15).
