Spaniards clinch early lead in the second round of Open de España Femenino
Spanish professional players have finally decided to come out of oblivion to take control of their fate in the second round of Open de España Femenino at La Quinta Golf Resort in Marbella, Benahavis on the Costa del Sol.
Tania Elosegui, the young Spaniard pulled in a glamorous back nine carding four birdies so far before making the turn. She is now eight-under on the aggregate with her first round score of four-under, 68 on the par-72 course. Elósegui is now three shots
ahead of the overnight leader Becky Brewerton who has yet to tee-off for her second round.
Carlota Ciganda has also done well so far but most of her impressive birdie putts have been consumed to make up for the first round loss where she fell for a disappointing four-over, 76. She is now one-under on the aggregate and still to play her front nine.
Ciganda pulled in a stellar back nine, carding five birdies and dropped just one shot. She made the turn and birdied the second and sixth and dropped one shot at par-four, 3rd. Spaniards have not won the event in last 30 years since its inception
in 1982 and will be hoping to march all the way to the summit in the final round.
Germany’s Caroline Masson is also done with most part of the second round and is now playing for her final three holes on the front nine. She carded three birdies but also dropped two shots on the back nine, her front nine.
Laura Davies seems to be struggling on the course on the second day while the weather has been splendid in the opening two days of the event. Posting an overnight two-over, 74 on the first day, she has now slumped to another even-par day and has carded three
birdies and as many bogeys so far.
In a surprise visit, leading Spanish golfer Alvaro Quiros stopped by at the Open de España Femenino along with his compatriot Manuel Quirós.
Asked if he has any fondness for the Ladies Golf, Quiros replied, “I follow the Tour some times when I am in Europe and I like to watch it on TV. I know very well the Spanish players like Belen Mozo and Azahara Muñoz, because we live all in the same area
in Andalucía and we were together in Madrid when we were amateurs representing the Spanish team. During that period I also met Adriana Zwanck and Emma Cabrera.”
Quiros was scheduled to play at the Vivendi Seve Trophy but decided to give his injured wrist some rest.
