14th August 2010 | Alps Tour Golf
Weinhandl in command
Austrian Uli Weinhandl made the field dance on one’s tune. He shot 64, 7 under par to sign for the best score of the day and to lead one stroke clear. Weinhandl, still fighting for first win this year made very good impression. He holed 9 birdies today at Omnium of Belgium and no one seems to be able to stop him.
Yesterday leader, Juan Antonio Bragulat lived on of those awful day in golf. He scored 75, 11 strokes more than today’s leader…
Another player had a bad day. Tournament Committee had to disqualify Julien Foret as he played on a wrong green. A misreading of a commun rule (25-3) that costed him a lot.
Belgian Gerald Gresse kept on playing quite well and is second only one stroke back of the lead. However he confessed he struggled a little more with short game today to finally scored 70.
The final ranking tomorrow is much more important for another tournament. The Top 6 of the Alps Tour order of merit tomorrow evening will get exemption for European Tour first qualifying stage. There are two players in the race for the precious 6th place : Spaniard Carlos Balmaseda and Scot Gavin Dear. Until today, Dear is 7th but if he succeeded in climbing on the podium tomorrow AND Balmaseda finished about 20th or worst, then Dear could catch the precious master key.
