Santos Shines With 62 But Cort Remains On Top2 min read

Posted on: 16th Oct 2015

PGA in England Professional, Matthew Cort, continued his dominant display at the 2015 UniCredit PGA Professional Championship of Europe posting a second consecutive 66 for a -16 total, but defending Champion, Hugo Santos, is hot on his heels after a tournament record 62.

Moving day at the 2015 Championship did not disappoint at Pravets Golf & Spa Resort in Bulgaria, as the PGA Professional competitors jostled for position throughout the day.

There was no better example than that of Portugal’s Santos who began Round 3 in tied-17th position but managed to advance all the way to third after his record ten-under par 62.

Cort however managed to keep the top spot after another bogey-less round with two birdies on his front nine and four on the back for a six-under round score and a -16 (200) tournament total.

“Steady again, no drop shots, which is important,” said Cort.  “I managed to make six birdies and space them out…[I] drove it well, hit most of the greens…just a kind of stress-free golf.

“[A win] would cap a great year off – I’ve still got a few tournaments to come so I’m just trying to build some momentum going into those events and this would be a massive win for me, no question.”

Still in with every chance is PGA of Spain Professional, José Luis Adarraga.  A four-under 68 takes the Spaniard to -13 (203), just three shots off the pace and very much in with a shout in the final round.

Santos sits four shots off the pace at -12 (204) in a position the three-time Championship winner is very accustomed to, and his record-breaking round gives him plenty of positivity toward his campaign to make it four wins.

“I feel great, [62] is my best score ever, so I feel fantastic,” said Santos.  “The difference [today] was the putter because I holed some good ones.  It didn’t happen on the first two days but I kept my patience and today it happened.”
