Round 1 BEKO Classic 2012 – Edwards’ Storms to Early Lead after Stunning 661 min read


Posted on: 15th Nov 2012

The first Round of the BEKO Classic 2012 culminated with Wales’ Simon Edwards topping the leaderboard after shooting a fantastic six-under par 66 at this year’s host venue, Cornelia Golf Club, in Belek, Turkey.

With little wind and not a cloud in the sky, scoring conditions were near perfect as this year’s stunning field got underway on the Faldo design layout, and previous BEKO Classic Champion Edwards got off to a slightly unsteady start with a bogey on the first hole. However, he ensured he fought back with four birdies by the turn, and another three by the end of his round, to card the leading score of the day.

Edwards is by no means running away with things at this early stage, having been closely followed by the four-under par (69) Michael Stewart – an uncharacteristic double-bogey at the ninth was cancelled out by no less than seven birdies ensuring a second place overnight position.

Four players lay tied for third position at three-under par (69) – Mark Murphy, previous winners Jamie Little and Liam Bond, as well as Stuart Little who made an eagle two on the par-four seventh hole.

Tomorrow sees the competitors tee it up alongside different amateur teams to those in the first round, as well as a different 18-hole loop in play, meaning things will undoubtedly hot up, but with conditions clearly lending themselves to some significant sub-par rounds, the leaderboard could well change after Round 2.
