The 2013 PGAs of Europe Fourball Championship has got off to a flying start in somewhat damp conditions at Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community in Tarragona, Spain, with Mark Ridley and David Clark from the PGA of GB&I and Pablo Herreria and Ismael Del Castillo from the PGA of Spain leading the charge through Round One.
Play got underway across both the Hills and Lakes Courses at Lumine Golf Club in wet and windy conditions, but with nowhere near the force that was forecast for the day, giving the players a welcome opportunity to post some excellent opening rounds.
The pairings of Herreria & Del Castillo and Ridley & Clark both tackled the Hills course each scoring seven-under 65s with only one bogey recorded between both pairs.
Three pairs on the Par-71 Lakes course (Saluda & Ossowski, Gronkvist & Magnusson, and Van Hauwe & Vandooren) carded six-under 65s, whilst Cavalheiro & Santos carded a six-under 66 around the Hills course.
Two pairs of Peter Bronson & David Pastor and Erik Moll & Lothar Jahn lie at tied-for-seventh five-under par, followed by no less than 13 players tied for ninth place, all firing four-under par rounds across both courses.
With the top twenty-one players all within three of the lead, the door is wide open for the teams to make their moves as they switch courses for round two.
