Huge margin for Cryer in Austria
Matthew Cryer confirmed good form with 64 today to increase his margin of 6 strokes. He only dropped one shot in 2 days and already got a hand on the jug of Haugschlag Nö-Open. His fellow Jason Palmer shot 64 as well and is a kind of used to be the runner up this season. He already had five top 5 this year and will have to be extremely efficient to disturb Cryer’s plan tomorrow.
Austrian Leo Astl and Slovenian amateur Tim Gornik are two-way tie fourth 7 strokes back of the lead. The level of the field was very consistent this week and the perfect weather provided great scores. The cut is fixed at -3, the lowest tie this season with Gösser Open one.
Despite this very low score, one player should appreciate this very special day more than the others. Frenchman Romain Zwahlen is going to play more than 2 days for the first time in 21 appearances on the Alps Tour. Everybody has kept in mind Justin Rose’s 19 cuts missed in a row as he turned pro. Now it’s up to Zwahlen to follow in Rose’s footsteps.
Another Frenchman did have his moment today. Now well known Alan Bihan holed in one his 9th hole the 18th. Bihan signed for 66 to be 10th prior to tee off last round.
