Pastor starts well in Andalucia
Spain’s Marcos Pastor fired course record 64 to take one stroke lead at Alps de Andalucia. A pack of five players, 4 Spaniards and Welsh Rhys Enoch share second place.
The course defended itself poorly face to Alps Tour young guns. The perfect conditions helped players to shoot low and the projected cut after 18 holes is -3 and half of the field played under par.
Pastor signed for a flawless card on Club de Golf Playa Serena golf course.
The truth is that during first three holes (started at 10th I played poorly, I did not hit the ball well but I managed to save pars and at 12th hole I hole a good par and everything went well. I gave myself an eagle opportunity on the 13th, I missed but it was the beginning of the perfect round. I holes for birdies on the 15th and 16th, it was a gimee on 17th and I holed more than two meters on the 18th to complete the strike.
On back nine, I played really solid, holed a good one for par on 8th. I did not change my swing but I trained better and I have a new putter.
Wales’s Enoch, tie for second, is coming back to the Alps Tour after few events played on Challenge Tour. Chubby Chandler’s protege is currently ranked 7th at the Alps Tour ranking, one back of a precious spot to avoid playing the Stage 1 of European Tour Qualifying School. His best result is 2nd at Gösser Open.
