Lombard and Cañizares share top prize as 27 graduate to European Tour

Alejandro Cañizares and Zander Lombard shared the spoils on top of the leaderboard at the conclusion of this year’s Qualifying School Final Stage as 27 players earned European Tour cards.

Following six rounds at Lumine Golf Club South Africa’s Lombard and Spain’s Canizares could not be separated on 24 under par, and as is customary in the case of a tie in the event, the duo were crowned joint winners with no play-off taking place.

On a day of high drama in Tarragona several players made big moves to secure their playing privileges on the European Tour for 2019. South Africa’s Louis de Jager was the first to seal his spot in the top 25 and ties, firing a bogey-free score of 66 to progress from Q-School for the first time in five attempts.

Also making late charges into the European Tour places were Italy’s Filippo Bergamaschi and Chile’s Hugo Leon. Bergamaschi birdied five of his closing eight holes to make the top 25 on the number, while Leon bagged his only birdie of the day on the 18th to also go through on the mark – which was 16 under par.

Three-time European Tour winner Marc Warren bounced back from a bogey on the 17th with a closing birdie to take the 19th card, while Norwegian Kristoffer Reitan – the only amateur to make the cut this year – also squeezed through after a final round of 72.

Former Amateur Champion Scott Gregory, who hit headlines for shooting 92 in the opening round of the U.S. Open five months ago, claimed the 12th card after coming through all three stages of Q-School this year – one of seven players to achieve the feat this season.

The winners:

Alejandro Cañizares

“It was difficult for me, it’s been a weird two years coming over here and I couldn’t be happier. My future wife is pregnant and I’m going to be a father soon. There’s many good things happening at the moment.

“I’ve played in three Q-Schools now, it’s been a long time that has gone really quickly since I started on the Tour in 2006, and I knew my golf was there it just wasn’t happening the last two years. I had a couple of injuries, some personal things and golf wasn’t happening.

“And now, all those things are gone, and I can just play and focus on my game and get the confidence back hopefully. I’m over the moon.”

Zander Lombard

“It’s great having lost my card and now I’ve regained my rights its awesome. I shouldn’t have been here in the first place, but to come out strong and prove myself to be on the Tour it’s really amazing, I don’t have words for it right now.”

“I’ve usually had a lazy first half to the season but I’m going to try to do things differently this year and play as much as I can early in the year and try to get the numbers up early. I’m going to play four weeks on the trot and then four weeks back home at the beach with a few cocktails.”

Fourball Championship Press Release

Nota de Premsa Costa Daurada Fourball Championship

Puig Giner & Arnaus Antunex Shine Amongst Spanish Dominance at Fourball Championship

Xavier Puig Giner & Adria Arnaus Antunex produced a wire-to-wire finish in the 2018 Fourball Championship Presented By Costa Daurada at Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community in Spain, beating over 200 PGA Professionals to win the Championship with an outstanding -28 total (186).

“It’s a great pleasure to win, and we’re very happy as it’s the first tournament of the season,” said Puig Giner after his pair’s closing 62.  “Playing with Adria was very nice and it was great to learn next to each other and do good things.”

A 63 in the first round and 61 in the second round had given the pair a three shot lead into the final day, and with so many pairs on their tail they knew that aggressive play was required.

“I had an idea what could be the winning score because we were rooming with two past champions,” added Arnaus Antunex.  “So we kept a total in front of us and tried to make as many birdies as we could.”

An eagle and three birdies on the outward nine followed by four birdies on the way in lead to a nine-under par 62 and their -28 total.

Four shots back on -24 (190) in second place were Carlos del Moral Barilari & Jordi Garcia del Moral (PGA of Spain) whose second 63 of the Championship was not quite enough to catch the lead of the eventual winners.

“We played good golf this week to finish second,” said Garcia del Moral.  “It was a bit of pity because we played well, but Adria and Xavi played awesome so we are pretty happy.”

Third place fell to another PGA of Spain pair, Liam Murray & Jordan Gibb.  This pair had started their Championship with a strong 65 on the Lakes Course but were not able to make up the ground required, despite a closing 64 on the Lakes Course.

“The Fourball is a fun event to start the year with,” said Murray.  “It’s nice to know you have a partner who lets you wing it a little bit – you’re not sure exactly where it’s going to go because we haven’t played as much, so you can see how you deal with some pressure and how different areas of your game are holding up.”

“Lumine has good players golf courses,” added Gibb.  “If you hit the ball well then it’s fair and that’s what you want in a course – to reward good shots.”

“It’s my fourth year as a Professional but the first time I have won anything…so winning here means a lot as this is where I live and where I practice,” said Cuartero.

“It’s home to me and I know so many people here.  I didn’t play overly well and had some damage control holes but I made a lot of birdies over the three days in tough conditions.  Having the Pro-Am here at Lumine feels good – to be able to play such a good course and have an amazing week is great.”

Cuartero’s consistent play across the week allowed him to stay ahead of the field by two shots in Round 02 and 03 with a consecutive level pars.  Round 03 consisted of three birdies and three bogeys resulting in an overall total of two-over for the event (216).

Tied second position went to a trio of PGA of Sweden Professionals – Jesper Kennegard, Bjorn Pettersson and Joakim RaskKennegard had taken a strong lead in Round 01 but a tough second 18 holes brought him back into the pack. A one-over par 72 gave him his four-over, 218 total.

Pettersson was able to go one better, with a closing level par 71, his lowest round of the week, whilst Rask carded the lowest round of the day with a two-under par 69 for his share.

The Team Pro-Am event was won by the PGA of France’s Augustin Dragon and his amateurs, Patrick Ghezali, Sammy Medioni and Ahcene Nouisiri, with a total of 253 points (-37) after a tournament-best 86 points (-14).

New machinery in Lumine

Innovation, ecology and productivity, keys in the renewal of machinery of Lumine Golf

The maintenance team of the Lumine Golf field, in Tarragona, is very aware of the need to use machines with the latest technology on the market to offer the highest quality service. For this reason, it has decided to renew its machinery park, work for which it has once again relied on Riversa and the Toro brand. The field has acquired four hybrid units Reelmaster 5010 H for streets, a Groundmaster 3500 for rough and two Greensmaster 3250. In total seven units of Toro machinery that are added to the models that already had, and that will increase productivity and service of the Greenkeepers team.

The premises of its director, Calle Carlsson, and Tomás Agullo, its Head Greenkeeper, when making this renovation were very clear: models that were both productive, innovative and that opted for the reduction of emissions, without forgetting the cost savings Some needs that have been answered with the machinery delivered to the field.

The most outstanding example is the hybrid system of the Reelmaster, which offers significant fuel savings without sacrificing mowing quality. The machine has a mixed combustion engine system and AMG battery kit. The energy of the batteries is redirected when the situation requires it (steep slopes, among other cases) to feed the cutting units, which allows to concentrate the energy of the motor in the traction. In very demanding environments, the batteries have the capacity to power the units and, at the same time, divert part of the energy to the combustion engine. This system allows to maintain the same performance with 20% less fuel consumption compared to the models with a single engine, which also means a reduction in CO2 and decibel emissions.

For greens, precision in finishing is essential. The Greensmaster 3250 incorporates DPA technology (double set point) in its turnstiles, which shorten the adjustment times of each cutting unit and allow the Greenkeeper to easily adjust alignment between the base blade and the reel.

On the other hand, in the wide spaces of the rough, the model Groundmaster 3500 marks the difference with his units of cut Sidewinder, that can move up to 61 cm to the sides to vary the width of cut according to the need. In addition, the special housing of the Sidewinder creates air currents that keep the blade upright, which provides a cleaner cut.

Lumine Golf, property of Mediterranean Beach & Golf Community, is a field of great prestige at European level, located in an environment on the shores of the Mediterranean. Its three 18-hole courses are the work of acclaimed designer Greg Norman. In their work to offer a game of the highest quality, they are very aware of the respect for the environment and sustainability, an effort that was recognized with the first Audubon International Signature Sanctuary certificate delivered in Spain. Its high standards of quality in the practice of golf have made it the venue for numerous events, including Qualifiyng School Final Stage Veneu next November under the supervision of the European Tour.
