Roos Maintains Advantage at Costa Navarino2 min read

Posted on: 20th Jun 2015

Round 2 of the 2015 Aegean Airlines Pro-Am saw things hot up at Costa Navarino in Greece, as overnight leader, Jake Roos, continued his advance in the tournament with a one-under par 70 to lead at eight-under par (134).

Whilst Roos’ second round may not have had the same explosive outcome as the previous day, it was by no means less interesting.  Opening birdies at holes two, three and five saw him make the turn at ten-under with a comfortable lead on his fellow competitors.

However, as conditions continued to become ever more drier and faster in the Mediterranean heat, the South African’s lead diminished after bogeys at Costa Navarino Dunes’ tenth, 11th and 13th.  A single birdie at hole 16 got him back to red numbers for the day, closing with a one-shot advantage on the field.


Lying in second place just behind Roos is the PGA of Italy’s Nicolo Gaggero, a three-time Aegean Airlines Pro-Am Champion.

Having won all three of his Pro-Ams at Costa Navarino, Gaggero was always going to be a strong favourite.  A steady yet meaningful first round 68 at the Bay Course placed him well to capitalise further on day two – six birdies and two bogeys later he ended on 67 and a tournament total of seven-under par (135).

In Round 3 Gaggero will seek a fourth Pro-Am win and his third in a row, whilst Roos’ will look for a maiden Aegean Airlines Pro-Am and Confederation of Professional Golf event win.  But both will also be in good company in the final group as PGA of Norway Professional and 2009 Aegean Airlines Pro-Am winner, Paul Nilbrink, will join them as he looks to build on his four-under total (138).

Alongside Nilbrink on the leaderboard at -4 but heading up the penultimate grouping is the PGA of Germany’s, Sebastian Buhl.  Buhl will be joined by the PGA of Greece’s Panos Karantzias (-3) and PGA of Italy Professional and 2013 UniCredit PGA Professional Champion of Europe, Federico Elli (-3).

The Team Pro-Am competition culminated after Round 2 and results in the Team competition will be revealed at the end of the final day’s play.

Round 3 of the Individual Professional tournament gets underway at 07:30am EEST at Costa Navarino’s Dunes Course.
