Shot gun for last round !
Italians Alessio Bruschi and Niccolo Quintarreli and France’s Jérome Lando-Casanova and Sébastien Gros were the strongest highlangers at Valle d’Aosta Open. With -9 total the four players lead by one stroke over Swiss Fredrik Svandberg and Italy’s Andrea Zanini.
It tooks more than 30 hours to complete the second round. Heavy rain flooded the golf course yesterday and last players signed for their score around 12h30 today. The weather has been worst and worst during the past 48h hours and it only seems to be ok for this afternoon. The European Tour weather forecast informed the Alps Tour that the afternoon will be playable in this area. As the players from upper circuit are in Crans-sur-Sierre, the situation is about the same.
The cut is fixed at -1 and despite the short course of Cervinia, it proved that cold temperature and very wet conditions of play disturbed players a lot. Last round is to be played with shot gun tee time. The goal is to finish the tournament today as snow is expected tomorrow…
The score can be low and hard to bet on any name among the top 10 to lift the trophy.
