Daly’s Day at Gloria2 min read

Posted on: 5th Dec 2014

1995 Open Champion, John Daly, took the lead in the 2014 Beko Classic after Round 2 with a low round of the day of 63 (-9), three shots ahead of his rivals at -15 (129). 

Daly started the day at Gloria Hotels and Resorts’ Old Course with a birdie on the first followed by three regulation pars.  But then the American notched things up a gear with birdies at five, six and nine to go out in four-under, along with a three hole birdie streak from ten, a birdie at 15 and another at 17 to come back in 30 for his 63.

First round leader, Chris Gane, sits at second place on twelve-under (132) for the tournament after a second round 69 (-3).  Whilst Gane’s round wasn’t quite as spotless as it had been in Round 1, it was only a solitary bogey at the Old Course’s 14th hole that marred the card.

Clearly Gane’s game is looking good for the week but is only one shot ahead of England’s Adam Gee after his six-under 66, combined with his first round 67, enabled him to finished at -11 (133).

The Team Pro-Am competition continues to be led by team Gloria (Fahir Telli, Dr. Nurettin Katiranci and Hatice Cetindere) with a total of 176 points (-32) after a second round 84 points in conjunction with Professional for the day, David Griffiths.

Still in second place, with the same Round 2 score of 84 points and a total of 173 points (-29), are GOLFIST (Esra Demirsoy, Ian Randell and Angus Mackenzie) today assisted by Professional, Adam Gee.

The final round will see the top 16 teams and Professionals join forces on Gloria’s New course to battle it out for the Team Pro-Am honours and the Individual Professional prize fund of $80,000.  The final round begins at 09:30am(GMT+2) 6th December 2014.  For full Round 2 scores visit:  http://eur.pe/1I5Wudt .
