The weather for Round Two of the PGAs of Europe Fourball Championship, held this year at Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community in Spain, was notably better than the pervious day’s exploits, shown by a myriad of low scores across both the Hills and Lakes courses.
Improved weather conditions meant each course was receptive enough for low rounds – not least from the overnight leaders, Ridley & Clark, who carded an eight-under 63 on the Par-71 Lakes to hold a two shot lead going into day three.
Also playing in the final group are Portugal’s Nelson Cavalheiro & Hugo Santos whose low round of 64 on the Lakes positioned them once again with a share of second place.
The other overnight leaders, Herreria & Del Castillo [Spain], continued their excellent form, carding a six-under 65 to keep them near the top of the leaderboard and in the penultimate group for the final round alongside another 63 pair in the shape of Andrej and Danny Kraljic.
Also lying at tie-fourth place is the pair of Uli Weinhandl & Jurgen Maurer’s whose 64 was aided by a Hole-in-One on the 211m Par-3 14th of the Hills course from Maurer, whilst Craig Swinburn & Matthew McGuire’s assistance came in the form of an eagle two on the Hills’ 306m Par-4 18th hole after Swinburn drove the green with his tee-shot.
