Scrimshaw enters final round as sole leader
Andrew Scrimshaw (ENG) took the lead of the Alps de Andalucía today at La Monacilla Golf Club to enter the final round of the tournament at -7 total. Miguel Gaspar (POR) and Alex Esmatges (ESP) are both one stroke behind Scrimshaw.
« I played nice and solid. It could have been a lot better to be honest if all the putts had gone in. Hopefully they’ll go in tomorrow » Scrimshaw said. « I was happy with how I felt today. I did not feel nervous, I think I did what I’ve been doing in the last couple of days. Hopefully, it will be most of the same tomorrow, we’ll see what happens » he continued.
Scrimshaw had a total of 7 birdies and 4 bogeys, 2 of them on the last 2 holes. « I got up to 9 total with 2 holes to play. They were 2 tough holes, 2 long holes, par 4s. You have to get a good tee shot otherwise you’re going to struggle. I was out of position both times off the tee and unfortunately, I made 2 bogeys » he explained.
« The course is not easy and I hit the ball well. I made a couple of mistakes that led to some bogeys but I’m pretty satisfied with my game » Teremoana Beaucousin (FRA) said after finishing round 2 tied for 4th place at -5.
Antoni Ferrer Mercant (ESP) turned in the best card of the day at 66 (-6) to finish round 2 also tied for 4th place at -5 total.
43 players made the cut set at +2 and will play the final round of the tournament on Saturday.
Weather conditions were sunny with winds picking up in the afternoon and temperatures reaching 30°C.
Final round will tee off on Saturday at 8h30 local time.
