Round 3 BEKO Classic 2012 – Edwards Claims BEKO Classic Hat-Trick in Turkey2 min read

Posted on: 17th Nov 2012

After leading through Round 1 of this year’s BEKO Classic 2012 at Cornelia Golf Club, Turkey, Simon Edwards (Wales) came out on top after carding a ten-under par 206 (66, 72, 68).

Edwards set himself up at the beginning of the tournament with a first round score of six-under par, followed up by an understated level-par 72 in Round 2 to ensure he was within touching distance of the top of the final day leaderboard.

The Welshman started steady with birdies at five and seven to go into the back nine at two-under par. A small blip bogey at ten didn’t get him down as he replied with three consecutive birdies. A bogey at fourteen was quickly cleared with a birdie at fifteen, and two pars to finish gave Edwards the four-under 68 required to take the tournament by one shot to fellow countryman Garry Houston.

Houston began the tournament with a pair of 70s to lie at four-under going into the final day, and came out fighting with a five-under par front nine, followed up with an up and down back nine to finish the round still at five-under, but nine-under par (207) for the tournament.

Third place fell to Englishman Jamie Little, finishing on an eight-under par total of 208, with a closing four-under 68, just one shot ahead of fourth place Rhys Enoch, the overnight leader who sadly couldn’t capitalise on his move yesterday, finishing with a one-over par 73 to end at six-under (210) for the tournament.

The ties at fifth place (211) included previous BEKO Classic winners Phil Golding and Liam Bond, shooting 70 and 69 respectively, together with Mark Murphy (final round 68) and Englishman Michael Stewart (72).

Round of the day undoubtedly goes to previous Ryder Cup player Andrew Coltart, whose seven-under par 65 consisted of six birdies, and eagle and sadly a bogey at the final hole, but ensured he earned a place at tie-ninth for the tournament.

Alongside Coltart, Stuart little (England) crept into the top-10 with a closing four-under 68, finishing tied as well as with steady sub-par player Zeke Martinez (Italy/USA).
