Jarmo Sandelin and Jean-Francois Remesy both finished on -5 for the day at the Farmfoods European Legends Links Championship at Trevose Golf and Country Club.
It was another beautiful day at Trevose as all 54 professionals went out with their amateur partners to take on the Championship course.
Sandelin started with a bogey on the second hole before a spectacular eagle on 4 ensured he had the outright lead. He then made a birdie on 8 to cement his position as leader. He then struggled with two bogies on his back nine to bring him back in line with the chasing pack.
Remesy had a steady round going bogey free on the front nine without making any birdies. His first three holes on the back nine saw him go birdie, bogey, birdie before making six consecutive pars to finish on -5 for the tournament and sit alongside Sandelin at the top of the leaderboard.
After his round Sandelin said:
“Well today was a tougher day because the wind has picked up and the greens are drying out. I played really well on the front nine, I was two under after 8 and then of course I am trying to go for the green on 9 with my driver from the rough and I hit it really badly and dropped a shot there. I’m still in contention and hopefully I won’t make any mistakes tomorrow.”
The local interest story features Truro based professional Mike Reynard who finished the day on -1. Reynard is still very much in contention and he is attached to Trevose and will believe he has a good chance to make a run for the tournament on the final day’s play tomorrow.
In the Alliance team event, tournament host Ian Woosnam OBE and his playing partner Farmfoods CEO Eric Herd were victorious holding off the challenge from Mike Reynard and his amateur Tony Murtagh and Mauricio Molina and his amateur Simon Harding. Herd and Woosnam finished with a total score of -16 over the two day’s play one shot ahead of the teams in second place.
Entrance is free for spectators wishing to come to Trevose to see the final day’s play and the gates open from 8.30am.
