Holland Hold Marginal #ITC Lead After Round 021 min read


Posted on: 4th Dec 2019

Despite a strong second round score of 140 (-6), leaders Team Holland are being made to work for the 2019 International Team Championship title at Penina Hotel & Golf Resort.

PGA Professionals Ralph Miller (Captain), Mark Reynolds and Ruben Wechgelaer posted scores of 70, 70 & 76 respectively, which keeps them just one shot ahead of the PGA of Italy (with professionals Andrea Rota, Gregory Molteni and Mauro Bianco) after they posted the lowest team score of the day with 139 (-7).

“I played very well and managed to make an eagle and a few birdies along the way, so I am very pleased with how I battled today” said Captain Ralph Miller.

Despite their success so far, Mark Reynolds was keen for his team to remain humble and focused: “We might be leading but we have to focus on the job tomorrow, ignore the leaderboard as much as we can and post some good numbers”.

In the International Team Shield, a secondary tournament within the Championship for those PGAs with a membership of less than 100 Professionals, Team Poland (with professionals Maksymilian Saluda, Michael O’Brienand Brian Messing) overtook Team Greece after shooting a one-under-par (145) score.

With both events concluding tomorrow, both Holland and Poland will hope to continue their current form in what have been closely contested championships at Penina Hotel & Golf Resort.
