Spain's duet to lead in Madrid
Juan Parron of Spain shares lead with fellow Vincente Blazquez at -5. Two strokes back, another compatriot, Alfonso Gutierrez. The good form of spanish golf keep on shining in Madrid.
Parron admitted his fear to miss a third cut in a row. He was playing great, he said, but the lack of confidence was important as he teed off this week.
« Club de Campo is a golf course that I like very much. The truth is that I arrived here a bit afraid. I have been playing great for the last 3 months and working well on swing changes with my father. I missed the cut at Alps de las Castillas. Then I missed by 1 shot at Challlenge de España struggling a lot and I was afraid to miss the third cut in a row. »
« I played incredible today, the only big change came from my long putter. What am I going to do with the long putter? well, the reality is that I was not holing anything with the short one so I decided to play long putter. As long as I can, I will use it then I will try to switch, but for the moment I am not going to fail because of the putter. Thanks to London Growers and Almerimar resort I can compete again, all I have to do is recover my confidence and I will be at high level again ».
Alongside Parron, another spanish player, Vincente Blazquez, showing less confidence in his long game and kind of surprised to lead the field.
« I am not hitting the ball well, I am not comfortable with my swing, I don’t reach fairways, but the good thing is that my short game is great. That is saving me but I have to start playing better and not trust so much in luck. I will concentrate hole by hole, day by day and I hope to keep shooting low scores ».
Ireland’s Stephen Grant take advantage of kind of a moving event. Currently sixth at Alp Tour raking, this week in Spain could be worthful. As Ricki Neil-Jones missed the cut and Enouch and Gros took a week off, the Irishman could jump in the so much coveted Alps Tour Top 5.
