Cort Cards 66 To Lead at La Manga2 min read

Posted on: 16th Feb 2016

The PGA of Great Britain & Ireland’s Matthew Cort leads the way after a five-under 66 in Round 02 of the 2016 La Manga Club International Pro-Am in Spain, securing a buffer of three shots heading into the final round.

Calmer conditions fell upon the competitors for Round 02 at the La Manga Club and the scores certainly reflected that, with both the Professional Individual and Pro-Am being tightly poised, promising an exciting and tense finish to the tournament.

Leading the way in the Individual Professional event is Matthew Cort who continued on from where he left off in Round 01 with five birdies on the front nine of the club’s North Course.

“I’ve not played the North Course for a few years so it was almost like playing blind,” said Cort.  “My team are doing well in the team event so there’s a chance to really compete on both sides so yeah I’ll just try to enjoy it.”

On the back nine one solitary blemish on the card on the 13thhole was promptly cancelled out by a birdie on 17 resulting in the lead at the close of play and a three-shot cushion over fellow 2015 Fourball Champion, Craig Shave(PGA of GB&I).

Cort is also chasing a Confederation of Professional Golf treble having already won the Fourball Championship with Craig Shave in 2015, along with the PGA Professional Championship of Europe in October.

Shave meanwhile remains in touching distance of Cort after two one-under par nines resulted in a 69 (-2) and a 143 (-1) total.

Finishing off the top-three is another GB&I Professional, Brendan McGovern, whose round of 70 (-1) took him to even par for the tournament and hot on the heels of Cort and Shave ahead of the final round.

In the Team Pro-Am it was all change at the top and the team lead by Brendan McGovern closed the three-point deficit earning a slender lead heading into the final round. An excellent team effort saw McGovern’s team sign for a total of 166 (-22) and a one point lead over Cort’s team who signed for an impressive 10 under par and a 165 point total (-21).
