Narrow advantage for Tarrio in Costa del Sol
Spain’s Santiago Tarrio, 25, will have a narrow advantage heading to Alps de Costa del Sol final round with -10 total. The young man signed for 69 thanks to 6 birdies and 3 bogeys. There are two men only one shot back, France’s Nicolas Tacher and England’s Tom Shadbolt.
There are only 3 tournaments left to complete the 2016 Alps Tour season. Matt Wallace has already secured his category to play on Challenge Tour next year, at least. The battle behind to grab the 4 spots left is very tight and the final ranking can really move until the last event.
Santiago Tarrio’s best result this season is a 12th place, twice. Nicolas Tacher and Tom Shadbolt were both close to win during the last 12 months but none of them managed to seal a victory.
The 3 men shot under par the first three rounds. Tarrio and Tacher both broke 70. The odds for a new winner to engrave his name on the trophy are high but Thomas Elissalde, winner 3 weeks ago in Italy, is only 3 shots back. The road to be the one to lift the trophy in Spain is wide open.
