Gaster won maiden trophy in Andalucia
Austria’s Clemens Gaster claimed maiden win on Alps Tour despite charge of Spanish players. Gaster shot final round 65 for -13 total as overnight leader has trouble to keep his nerves of steel heading to final round. Sebastian Garcia Rodriguez dropped 3 shots in first two holes before holing for birdie on the third. He finished at second place one shot back of the winning score.
A group of three Spaniards shared third place, David Borda, Ignacio Sanchez Palencia and amateur Angel Hidalgo, all with -12 total and finally, two other players from Spain are one shot further, former Challenge Tour player Ignacio Gerard Piris Mateu and Alfredo Garcia-Heredia.
Thanks to this win, Gaster made a huge jump at the ranking from the 70’s to the 20’s position. He earned his place to the Grand Final.
Adria Arnaus eventually took the lead of the ranking over passing France’s Ugo Coussaud who missed the cut this week. The two men are only less than 150 points away.
