Superb Shave Surges Clear At La Manga Club Pro-Am2 min read


Posted on: 8th Mar 2017

The PGA of Great Britain & Ireland’s, Craig Shave, carded a sublime six-under round of 67 to go seven shots clear at the La Manga Club International Pro-Am.

The fourth edition of the Pro-Am commenced on the South Course, which was the site of Arnold Palmer’s 1975 Spanish Open win and also where he redesigned the course in 1996.

 

Shave got off to a relatively quiet start, reaching the turn in an even-par 37. However, he was quickly into his stride on the back nine, making birdie on the par-four 10th.

A further three birdies followed on the 12th, 15th and 16th, before the Englishman rounded off his round with an excellent eagle on the par-five 18th, to finish with a round of 67 (-6).

Shave is seven shots clear of fellow PGA of GB&I Professional, Daniel Whitby-Smith, and Lukasz Szadny (PGA of Poland), who both opened with one-over rounds of 74.

The PGA of Poland’s, Szadny, produced a solid round with one birdie and two bogeys, which gives him a slim chance of pegging back the leader.

Similarly, Whitby-Smith, who’s round consisted of three birdies and four bogeys, needs things to fall his way in Round 02 to be able to close the gap to Shave.

Leading the way in the Team Pro-Am Competition is the quartet consisting of PGA of Poland professional, Lukasz Szadny, and amateurs Waldemar KowalczykowkiKrzystof Burlaski and Marek Rakocy.

The team scored 85 points (-13) to open up a two-point lead over Team Bossert (PGA of Switzerland) and Team Cheese (PGA of GB&I), who carded 11 under rounds (83 points).

Round 02 of the event moves to the North Course, before returning to the South Course for the third and final round.
