Emilio Cuartero (PGA of Spain) carded a level-par 72 around the Hills Course at Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Club in Spain to take a slim lead heading into the final round of the 2018 Costa Daurada International Pro-Am.
Having begun the day six shots behind overnight leader, Jesper Kennegard (PGA of Sweden), Cuartero was able to shoot the lowest score of the day in what was a real test for all the players.
Cuartero was two-over par through his first nine holes, but three birdies in a row on holes 10, 11 and 12 meant that even with a further bogey at 14, he could keep his overnight score of two-over for the tournament (145).
Kennegard was not able to maintain his lead from Round 01, taking 79 (+7) shots to complete his second round, but ending just a single shot back on three-over (146), alongside the PGA of France’s Franck Arcivaux.
The PGA of Sweden’s Bjorn Pettersson remains in tied-fourth position on four over (147) and is joined by the PGA of France’s Frank Vigouroux.
After another strong team performance, Augustin Dragon (PGA of France) and his amateurs, Patrick Ghezali, Sammy Medioni and Ahcene Nouisiri, have kept their position at the top of the Team Pro-Am leaderboard. A second round 82 points (-10) gives them an overall total of 167 points (-23).
Eric Colletta (PGA of France), Simon Cohen, Pierre Fedrigo, and Michael Paoli also maintained their position in second place with a seven-under score of 79 points and a total that sits them just six shots behind the leaders on 161 points (161).
Cuartero’s individual performance and solid play by his amateurs – Javier Aymat Satue, Luis Angel Perez Gonzalez and Oscar Toribio Garcia – saw them rise here places up the leaderboard into third place on 157 points (13).
