Costa Navarino Specialists, Elli & Engdahl, Lead 13th Aegean Airlines Pro-Am2 min read

Posted on: 7th Jun 2018

PGA of Italy Professional, Federico Elli, and PGA of Greece Professional, Henrik Engdahl, share the 13th Aegean Airlines Pro-Am lead on four-under par after the first round. 

Both Professionals have excellent previous form on both The Dunes Course and The Bay Course at Costa Navarino in Greece, with Elli having won the inaugural Messinia Pro-Am in 2017, and Engdahl having recorded various top-ten finishes to go with his Aegean Airlines Pro-Am win in 2007 at Crete Golf Club.

Elli had a clean card with four birdies, whilst Engdahl’s two bogeys were cancelled out by six birdies throughout his opening round.

Four players sit in tied third position – Lorenzo Magini, Nicolò Gaggero and Emanuele Canonica from the PGA of Italy, and the PGA of Czech Republic’s Petr Strougal – each just one off the pace on three-under par.

19 Professionals are under par after Round 01 with notable starts from Ladies European Tour Professionals and Aegean debutants, Sophie Walker (-2) and Kelsey MacDonald (-1), past Aegean Champions, Zeke Martinez (-2) and Jake Roos (-1), and Costa Navarino’s own PGA of Greece Professionals, Chryssanthos Diakou and Adam Kritikos (-2).

Tied for the lead in the Team Pro-Am event are the team of PGA of South Africa Professional, Ivano Ficalbi, and amateurs Roy Braxton, Lefty Piagalis, and Avgerinos Piagalis, and Chryssanthos Diakou and his amateurs Marinela Zavloschi, Ciprian Zavloschi and Claude Idoux, both opening with 94 points (-22).

PGA of Slovenia Professional, Damjan Murgelj, and his team then share second place on 93 points (-21) with PGA of Canada Professional, Mike Burrows, and his amateur teammates.
