Adarraga Makes Positive Start at PGA Professional Championship of Europe2 min read

Posted on: 14th Oct 2015

The PGA of Spain’s José Luis Adarraga has taken the early lead at the 2015 UniCredit PGA Professional Championship of Europe after carding a fantastic opening six-under 66 at Pravets Golf & Spa Resort in Bulgaria.

“I played very well, starting with birdies on one and two…it was very good for me” said the Spaniard.  “Making the first nine at six-under was very good.  I made good drives, good iron shots, perfect putts…I think it’s possible to be a good tournament for me.”

The first of four championship rounds began with noticeably better weather conditions than the PGA Professionals had prepared in, and Adarraga got his campaign underway in style with an opening birdie 4 on the par-5 10th hole.  That birdie immediately opened the floodgates as he made the turn at six-under.

A further birdie at the 2nd hole, his 11th, was cancelled out by a single bogey on the penultimate hole for his 66-shot total.


Only one shot behind is PGA of Sweden Professional, Christoffer Wahlgren.  Again beginning on the back nine, Wahlgren moved quickly with a run of birdies to make it to six-under through 10 holes.  Bogeys at his 14th and 17th holes, and a birdie at 16 got him home in level for the back-nine and a five-under 67.

“I played very well on the front-nine but the back nine was harder, I struggled a bit but still made it,” said Wahlgren.  “I want to try to make it easy, not do anything that demands a lot and just play safe – we’ve still got 54-holes so time will tell.”


One further shot behind are four Professionals – Matthew Cort (PGA in England), Graeme Brown (PGA in Scotland), Joao Ramos (PGA of Portugal), and Craig Shave (PGA in England) – each carding four-under par 68s, well and truly in the mix.

The second round of the 2015 UniCredit PGA Professional Championship of Europe at Pravets Golf & Spa Resort gets underway at 09:30 (EEST), 15th October. For live scores and updates visit
