Kempinski “The Dome” Pro-Am 2013 – Yamac and Martinez Lead the Way in Antalya2 min read


Posted on: 7th Feb 2013

Day One of the 2013 Kempinski “The Dome” Pro-Am got underway to a damp and soggy start at Antalya Golf Club in Turkey, but that didn’t stop the tournament getting off to a great start, with two 68s leading the overnight scoring at four-under par.

Weather conditions for the first round of the annual Pro-Am left something to be desired as 30 teams got their initial rounds underway at Antalya Golf Club, but as always the courses did not disappoint giving way for some low scores and high spirits.

 Turkish PGA member, Hakan Yamac, marched forward straight away with three birdies through the opening six holes of the round followed by two more at holes 10 and 13, however, a single blemish on the card with a bogey at 18 meant that Yamac wasn’t alone at the top of the leaderboard.

 Italy’s Zeke Martinez had a more turbulent mid-section of his card with two bogeys, four birdies, and an eagle making up his four-under 68, clearly managing to maintain the form from last year having won the 2012 Aegean Airlines Pro-Am in Cyprus, leaving him in A-1 position moving into Day Two.

 Whilst only five players managed sub-par rounds – the two leaders, Chris Baron & Bulent Karatas (-3), and Simon Edwards (-2) – the top-20 players all remain within touching distance at this early stage of play, so it’s up to Yamac and Martinez to capitalise on their early moves.

 In the overall Team event, it’s the PGA of Spain’s James Ferraby’s team that already have a six-point advantage (90 points) over the tied-for-second teams of individual leader Hakan Yamac and Chris Baron (84 points) going into Day-Two.
