Howell Heads for the Top at 2015 Beko Classic2 min read

Posted on: 4th Dec 2015

The 2015 Beko Classic is set for an exciting finale after a thrilling second round.  Setting the early clubhouse lead was five-time European Tour winner, David Howell, who shot a joint tournament best score of 68 (-4) on his way to signing for a 36 hole total of 138 (-6).

Three straight birdies from the first got his round off to a flying start and with one solitary bogey being the only blemish on his card, a further two birdies on the back nine put the pressure back onto Round 01 leader, Pontus Widegren.

PGA of Sweden Tour Professional and European Tour Member, Widegren, carried on from where he signed off in Round 01 with four birdies and just one bogey in his round of 69 to join Howell in the overnight lead.

With the top-four Professionals being separated by just two shots the chasing pack look set to ensure a close finish.

In third place is James Heath after an exciting second round that consisted of an eagle, two birdies and one solitary bogey that leaves him just one back from the lead and well in contention.

Rounding off the top four is the 2013 Beko Classic Champion and 2014 Beko Classic Runner Up, Robert Coles, who matched Widegren and Heath’s 69s to take him to a four-under par total of 140.

In the Team Pro-Am competition the Beko UK Team stretched out their lead to five points over the field after a second consecutive thirteen under par 85 points. The team were joined by Challenge Tour Member, Adam Gee, for their second round and got off to a flying start with Gee eagling their first hole, setting them up for another excellent score.

Beko South Africa and Beko Poland head up the chasing pack in Tie-Second place.

A special mention also goes to Peter Gustafsson who holed out his second shot on the par-five fourth hole for an incredible albatross – the first of his career!
