Kempinski “The Dome” Pro-Am 2013 – Baron Battles in Windy Belek to Take Lead2 min read


Posted on: 8th Feb 2013

The second day of the 2013 Kempinski “The Dome” Pro-Am at Antalya GC in the Belek region of Turkey proved an incredible challenge as GB&I’s Chris Baron fought to card a three-over 74, taking the lead heading into the final round.

The second day’s play was notably drier than Day One, but conditions were by no means easier – 20-30 mph gusts across Antalya GC’s Pasha and Sultan courses meant that low scoring rounds were hard to come by.

But Baron clearly did something right as he hung on in his round with two birdies and an eagle to end with an even par total for the tournament with one round left.

Simon Edwards, also representing the PGA of GB&I, equalled Baron with the pair shooting the best rounds of the day, even after a shaky section late into the round, leaving Edwards just one shot behind.

Day One co-leader Zeke Martinez (PGA of Italy) might not have matched his opening round form having carded a nine-over 80, but hangs on in tie-third place alongside Turkey’s Bulent Karatas at five-over for the tournament.

The two-round Team competition came to an end with low-scoring individual of the day leading his team to victory in the fourball better-ball tournament with a points total of 165.

Day One individual co-leader Hakan Yamac and his team also held on through their second rounds to take second place in the team event with a total of 158 points, closely followed James Ferraby’s team with 157 points to finish in third.

Day Three sees the professionals and amateurs split up to play separate courses as the individual professional tournament culminates on Antalya GC’s PGA Sultan course.
