Wrigley Speeds Ahead at Mercedes-Benz International2 min read


Posted on: 21st Jan 2015

PGAs of Europe - Alex Wrigley_02PGA of Great Britain & Ireland Professional, Alex Wrigley [pictured right], cemented his position at the top of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz International Pro-Am leaderboard with a four-under par 67 in Round 2 at Al Ain Equestrian, Shooting & Golf Club, UAE.

Wrigley leads the way at -10 (132) after another solid sub-par round allowed him to open up a small but significant lead over his rivals.

An early charge with birdies at the second and third holes took the Englishman to eight-under where he remained for the next eight holes until an uncharacteristic bogey at the 12th pushed him back to seven-under.

Undeterred Wrigley bounced back with three birdies in his closing five holes to post a 67 that sees him head into the final round with a two shot advantage over the chasing pack.

Still within touching distance of the lead is overnight co-leader Filip Mruzek [pictured left] after a two-under par 69 took him to -8 (134).

PGAs of Europe - Filip Mruzek_01The PGA of Czech Republic Professional was decidedly steadier in Round 2 with just a single birdie on the second nine having started on the 10th hole.  Birdies at two and six were only hampered by a bogey at four to close at eight-under for the tournament.

Remaining in third place is Wales’ Garry Houston who also took 69 strokes for his tournament total of seven-under par (135).

The Team Pro-Am competition remains wide open as the overnight leaders, Team Houston (John Bailey, Gary Dewhurst & Dorian Hopkins), dropped back to tied-third position on 173 points (-29) and were leapfrogged by Jonathan Grogan’s team of Patrick Seigmund, Michael Gustke, and Stefan Seifert, along with Nicolo Gaggero’s (PGA of Italy) team of Fabio Poggi, Andrea Grondona and Orlando Grondona, whose 86 and 89 points respectively boosted their totals to 175 (-31).

Team Houston sit alongside the team of Darko Ljubanovic (PGA of Croatia) and his teammates Damir Borovac, Alan Engelbrecht, and Mario Capek who each lie only two points behind the leaders.
