England's Cryer to lead in Italy
Matthew Cryer shot 65 -5 to take leadership at Feudi di Asti Golf Open. The 35 year old Englishman already won this year. He grabbed a trophy in Austria. His advantage is only one stroke.
At second place tie, a group of 5 players, two Frenchmen Mattieu Bozio and Romain Schneider, Scot Gavin Dear, Spaniard Juan Antonio Bragulat and Italian player Andrea Signor.
Signor shared his time playing on Alps Tour and Challenge Tour and a win could give him confidence.
Younger of the five, 21 year old French rookie Romain Schneider is looking for maiden win as pro. Schneider had a great amateur career and needed a few months to improve his game on Pro circuit but he has been playing very solid for weeks now and could be the surprise of the week.
Scot Gavin Dear is said by fellow players to be one of the best player without a win this year. Obviously, he is a serious challenger to Cryer.
This projected cut is +2 after 18 holes.
Alps Tour is visiting Italy for third time this season. The Feudi di Asti Open is presented by Scavino – Piaggo Veicoli Commerciali. This sponsor is faithfull to Italian pro Tour for a while.
