13th September 2013 | Alps Tour Golf
Palmer far away
England’s Jason Palmer fired second 67 in a row to lead at club house while half of the field is still on course. Fog was dense on thursday and play was delayed by 2 hours and 30 minutes. As first round was completed on friday morning, Manuel Quiros shot 64, course record but non official as prefered lies are applied. He took second place by his own?
Fall has arrived a little earlier than expected and it has been a long time since tee times have been delayed for more than 2 hours on the Alps Tour. Overnight leader, current Alps Tour top ranked, Jason Palmer showed once again that 2013 is his.
No dropped shot on the great course of Golf de Preisch near Luxembourg in the very North of France. He took the club house leadership with 6 shots over France’s players, Julien Foret, Olivier Rozner and Edouard Espana.
The latter is sharing his schedule between the Challenge Tour and the Alps Tour but now needs to confirm his fifth place at the ranking. His closest opponent is Ireland’s Brendan McCarroll whose potivation is at peak as he finished at the worst position last year, 6th.
The cut was fixed saturday morning at+2.
