Three at the Top as Invitational Heads Into Final Round1 min read


Posted on: 31st Oct 2015

There was a tight three-way tie at the top of the leaderboard at the end of the second round of the €50,000 Invitational Pro-am at Quinta do Lago in Portugal.

Adding 67s to their opening 70s Britons Bradley Neil and David Griffiths were joined at seven-under par by Spain’s Victor Garcia after he shot a 68.

However the story of the second round played at The North Course in Quinta de Lago was best illustrated by the fate of Sweden’s Mattias Bohlin who had led on the first day.

He had shot a seven under par 65 on the first day at Laranjal but moving to The North Course he needed ten shots more around The North layout that was recently toughened and redesigned by victorious Gleneagles Ryder Cup Captain, Paul McGinley.

The change was summed up by the West Herts Club Teaching Professional Griffiths who said “I had not played the course and found it really tough compared to Larajal.

“The greens were much bigger with lots of slopes on them and the key was to put the approach shots in the right places. And I did well to hole two putts of around 25-feet in length on two successive greens.

Former European Tour regular, Emanuele Canonica, and his fellow Italian playing partner, Roberto Mangifesta, shot a betterball 64 to earn a one shot lead at 20-under par in The Invitational’s Pro-Am competition.
