Austrian Aces Take 2013 Confederation of Professional Golf Fourball Championship Title2 min read


Posted on: 30th Mar 2013

Uli Weinhandl & Jürgen Maurer carded a ten-under par 61 around the Lakes course at Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community in Spain to finish at 21-under for the tournament, capturing the 2013 Confederation of Professional Golf Fourball Championship and taking home the €4,500 first prize.

Austria’s Weinhandl & Maurer continued their form from the previous two rounds with the lowest score of the week in their final assault, closely followed by England’s Mark Ridley & David Clark with a total of 20-under par.

The Austrian’s comparatively modest opening round 68 set them off on the right foot ensuring it gave them a platform to move forward on day two. And move forward they did: their excellent second round 64 was aided by a Hole-in-One on the 211m Par-3 14th of the Hills course from Maurer:

“Uli hit a little six-iron before me very close to the pin, so it was one way to make a better score!” said Maurer. “It was my first ace in a tournament so it was something special.”

A blemish-free third round consisting of 10 birdies meant the pairing completed their round as clubhouse leaders leaving a nervous wait as the final groups finished.

“It was quite close,” said Maurer. “We were just one ahead and then on the last we saw the other guys holing one for eagle so we actually thought it could be a playoff…overall we’re really happy.”

“It was a great pleasure to play here and a great start to the season,” added Weinhandl of the win. “We played really well – the first day we struggled a little bit but then yesterday and today were really good.”

The Ridley and Clark pair began their foray in the tournament with a seven-under 65 around the Hills course, which was followed by an eight-under 63 in Round Twoon the Lakes course, securing a late final round tee-time, in which they showed continued fight carding a fantastic 66.

But sadly even their eagle on the 18th hole was not enough to force a playoff, leaving them just a single shot off the pace:

“It’s been a great start to the year for us,” said Ridley. “The course was great and it’s been nice to get away and play some golf.”

Clark also added, “obviously we’re disappointed that we couldn’t quite finish it off but we played pretty good everyday so no complaints…we shot a decent score but the others did better.”
