Larranaga aims back-to-back win
Last week winner, Spain’s Eduardo Larranaga confirmed his good form and shot 66 today for -9 total. He leads the 2014 Abruzzo Open by one shot over France’s Dominique Nouailhac and Italy’s Alessio Bruschi.
With a total of -7, two Alps Tour winner, Spain’s Juan Antonion Bragulat and France’s Matthieu Pavon. The Spaniard shot the best score of the day with a 64 seven under par card.
The Alps Tour final ranking will be announced when the winner lift the trophy tomorrow. All players on the edge of the lucky top 5 will have an eye on what happens in the groups behind the leaders.
Larranaga will try to win a back-to-back title after his maiden trophy in France last week but France’s Thomas Elissalde, who missed the cut this week, will be very interested in who is going to earn the winning 5800 euros.
Elissalde, currently at 5th place, will loose his precious ranking in two cases, one, if his friend Matthieu Pavon wins and also if Jean-Pierre Verselin wins. This calcution is not very elegant but it matters when your season depends on it.
Borja Virto, Borja Etchart and Tobias Nemecz made the cut this week so they will gain more point to confirm their place in final Top 5.
