Spanish armada to lead
Spain’s duet took the lead after first round in Alps Costa del Sol. Marcos Pastor and Santiago Tarrio shot 68, -4 for a one shot advantage over a group of 7 players.
There are 3 events left to complete the 2016 Alps Tour season. Matt Wallace secured his category on Challenge Tour next year thanks to five wins in 6 events. But the top 5 is still very opened and a good result could change the picture.
Pastor only played 4 events this season on Alps Tour. He had seven birdies and made 3 birdies. Tarrio holed for 6 birdies and only missed two holes.
If we pay attention to the well ranked players, Franck Daux and Victor Perez had a tough day and they have been beaten by the course, uncompromisingly.
Thomas Elissalde and Stefano Pitoni stayed strong to keep their position. The latter shot -1 and the young Frenchman signed for a 2 under par card. The projected cut after one round is +1.
