Spain's Carlos Aguilar 4 clear
Spain’s Carlos Aguilar took charge in Styrian Mountain Golf-Open presented by Lyoness. He signed for 65, 6 under to aggregate an eleven-under-par total. His nearest challengers, Scott Henry and Philipp Genev are no less than 4 strokes behind. England’s Jordan Gibb is fourth with -6 and France’s Xavier Poncelet one shot back. The cut is fixed at +1.
Spain’s Aguilar was not supposed to be a threat to others players, nobody did really know a lot about his game. He did not play on Alps Tour this season and focused his career on Peugeot Tour in Spain. But Carlos Aguilar proved that the level of Spanish golf fits its reputation and he did no mistake to lead with huge margin in Austria. Scotland’s Scott Henry had his maiden win last may a few kilometres from Golf Club Reiting-Gai. He won the Gösser Open and Aguilar will for sure have to keep an eye on him. But he won’t be the only danger. Great names such as Brendan McCarroll, Guillaume Cambis, Jordan Gibb or European amateur champion Austrian Manuel Trappel are in top 10 after 2 rounds and have in common to play tomorrow for maiden win.
