Early #AegeanProAm Lead Taken on The Bay1 min read


Posted on: 23rd Sep 2019

It was a tale of two courses in Round 01 of the 14thAegean Airlines Pro-Am, as defending champion Henrik Engdahl and Steve Parry took full advantage on The Bay Course at Costa Navarino in Greece.

British Professional, Parry, set the early target with a 65 (5-under-par), only to be joined later in the day by Engdahl, continuing a fine run of form for the Greek PGA Professional who claimed the honours last year.

“I am striking the ball really well, I putted well and hit all my numbers that I needed to,” said Engdahl.  “If it stays nice out there [tomorrow] and not too breezy then two or three under will be a good round for me”.

The Dunes Course at Costa Navarino was particularly challenging and showed its teeth to the other half of the field, with scoring considerably more difficult in blustery conditions. That was until Jack Eckardt (PGA of Austria) shot an impressive 68 (-3), nicely placing him to attack the lead heading into tomorrow.

In the team event, Team Burrows, with amateurs Dorin MateiuAnca Mateiu and Ionut Georgescu, stormed the early lead with a commanding 96 points (24-under-par) and will look to extend this further in tomorrow’s second round.
