Julien Brun to lead in the mountains
First round was completed this morning at Cervinio Open as storms and heavy rain stopped the game during opening round. The lead was at -5 with a pack of players reaching this score. France’s Julien Brun was among them. He managed to confirm his leadership after second 17 holes. He shot 62 to add to his opening 63, -11 total.
Bad weather destroyed hole par 3 number 12 so officials decided, with approval of European Tour and OWGR, to play a 17 hole tournament counting for Alps Tour ranking and World Golf Ranking.
Julien Brun did not drop any shot in 34 holes and manage to deal with altitude and bad weather. The play was suspended again on Friday due to hail but eventually, all players could complete 2 rounds in time.
At second place, a single shot behind the Frenchman, Austria’s Christoph Koebler who signed for best score of the day, 61 -7, on, third place of provisional podium, Italy’s Nunzio Lombardi, one shot further.
The cut felt at level par including 48 players, 43 pros and 4 amateurs from Italy and Spanish Amateur, Adria Arnaus, 2017 Alps Tour winner.
