Maccario takes half way lead in Abruzzo Open
Federico Maccario shot brilliant 63, 8 under par, best score of the day to take half way lead with -11 in Abruzzo Open. The 22 year old player had flawless card with one eagle and 6 birdies. The overnight leader, France’s Raphaël Marguery, signed for a 69 two-under-par card to be second on his own heading to the week end, two shots back of the lead.
Players managed to tame the great course of Miglianico and many figures in red today. The cut felt at one under par and Victor Perez, currently 2nd at the Alps Tour ranking won’t play this week end and the risk is important for him to slide as all his challengers made the cut. Among them, Enrico Di Nitto shares third place with David Berna, both at -8 total.
Di Nitto is still fighting for a win this season. He finished second twice, in Tunisia and Italy, third attempt might be the one but his fellow countryman Maccario enjoys 4 round event as he won the Citadelle Trophy International last month. A win this week would give him a huge chance to play on Challenge Tour next year.
