Perfect weather and perfect temperature helped players to score low today in La Cala. Italy’s Marco Guerisoli (picture) and Wales Rhys Enoch both took the lead 18 holes to the end of the final Qschool. Guerisoli scored 67 today on Asia course and Enoch fired 64 on America course to aggregate -9.
A spring feeling was in the air during this second round in south Spain. No more wind compare to last week and no less than 25°C. The lack of pressure was a big help for one of the leader, Marco Guerisoli. He has been playing on the Alps Tour for a few seasons and decided to quit and teach last year. But the call of the game is still there.
” I am very happy about my game today, I only played 6 events last year cause I started to teach so I didn’t have time to play a lot. Honestly I didn’t prepare the Qualifying school, no short game at all eheh..(smiled). I was to busy with my work now as I am teaching so I train when I have time. I would like to have a AT category in order to program my work and play the tournament I prefer. I don’t have a lot of expectations and we’ll see what happen day by day. The courses are very good but very physical and wearying… The organization is very good and I’m very happy Alps Tour decided to play here cause I love Spain.”
At first place tie, Welsch Rhys Enoch. The 24 year old player from Cardiff had a glittering amateur carreer and grab his first win as pro last september as he teed off for the first time playing for money. The promising talent is one of Chubby Chandler’s rookies.
Today I started very well and my game was good during all round. 10 birdies and two bogeys. I’m happy to be here. I missed for one shot to get through the stage 3 of the EPTQ so I was very disappointed. Now I’m here and I’m going to try to get the AT category to have few options to play next year. I will have invites on Challeng Tour but when it won’t be possible to play on the upper circuit, I will play the Alps Tour.”
The cut is fixed at +2 for 70 players. Famous former European Tour player France’s François Delamontage failed to qualify.
