Six On the Spin Puts Cort Ahead2 min read


Posted on: 15th Oct 2015

England’s Matthew Cort was the leading light at Pravets in Round 2 of the 2015 UniCredit PGA Professional Championship of Europe as a stunning 66 took him to the top of the leaderboard at ten-under par (134).

Beginning on hole 10, Cort got his round off to a fiery start with no less than six birdies in a row.  12 regulation pars followed to conclude his round but there were many positives to be taken from the second 18 of the four-round Championship:

“It was a funny round, I birdied the first six and then parred the last 12,” explained Cort.  “I don’t think I’ve ever done that, birdied six in a row, especially when starting out.

“It’s the kind of course that if it’s nice and still like it was today, anybody in the field could shoot five, six or seven-under, so you can’t play for pars because you’re not going to move forward.  I just need to continue to hit greens and try to set up some chances.”

Round 1 leader, José Luis Adarraga (PGA of Spain), lies just one shot behind Cort after a three-under 69 helped him to keep up with the pace at nine-under (135).

“I played really very good,” Asarraga said.  “I went through the front-nine at three-under with good drives and putts…just perfect. The second nine I played very well, but I had many putts and I finished badly.  I will not change anything – I will continue my line [plan].”

Two shots further back from the Spaniard is PGA of Holland Professional and last year’s runner-up, Ralph Miller.  A bogey-free 67 positions Miller at seven-under for the tournament and in a good position to make an advance during the second half of the event.

“I’m going to stick to my gameplan – play the same shots,” said Miller.  I holed a lot more putts than yesterday – I hit 18 greens in regulation yesterday and hit 17 today as well but I holed a lot more putts.  It’s all to play for over the next few days.”

Special mention should also go to Wales’ Adam Constable who carded a hole-in-one at the par-three 12th hole.

Round 3 of the 2015 UniCredit PGA Professional Championship of Europe at Pravets Golf & Spa Resort gets underway at 09:30 (EEST), 16th October. For live scores and updates visit http://eur.pe/2015PGAProChamps.
