It was the PGA of Holland who stole the early lead in the 2019 International Team Championship, stamping their authority as one of the tournament favourites very early on.
PGA Professionals Ralph Miller (captain), Mark Reynolds and Ruben Wechgelaer formed a formidable partnership, with respective scores of 69 (-4), 74 (+1) and 76 (+3) proving just enough to form a one-shot lead over the PGA of Switzerland, who finished on 144.
“It was tough, the course was wet which made it feel quite long and combined with the tight fairways and tree lined holes, made it a very tricky test of golf” said Mark Reynolds, following the conclusion of his round.
“Ralph put a great score together today on minus four, so hopefully me and Ruben can follow suit in tomorrow’s round”.
In the International Team Shield, a secondary tournament within the Championship for those PGAs with a membership of less than 100 Professionals, the PGA of Greece (with Professionals Adam Kritikos, Chryssanthos Diakou and PGA of Greece President Adonis Sotiropoulos) and the PGA of Poland (with professionals Maksymilian Saluda, Michael O’Brien and Brian Messing) found themselves tied for the lead on 149 (+3) heading into round 02.
