Gagli Glows at Lumine International Pro-Am

The PGA of Italy’s Lorenzo Gagli conquered the Costa Daurada’s windy conditions, leading from start to finish to win the first ever Lumine International Pro-Am by three shots.

“I played very solid from tee to green [today]….I missed a few putts on the back nine, but it was really windy, so sometimes that happens,” said Individual Professional Winner, Gagli. “But I’m happy I finished with two birdies, so +2 today I think is a good round.

“I didn’t know [if it was enough to win]…but I did my job, so I was proud of my job and I played my best.

“I would like to thank my team, the PGAs of Europe, Lumine Golf Course, and all the pros and all the amateurs…I am very happy for this win.”

The forecasted high winds ensured that Round 03 was going to be a tough challenge for the players, as the competition returned to the Lakes Course at Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Club in Spain.

The contest was very much in the balance going into the final round, as Gagli held a slender two-shot lead over Bjorn Pettersson (PGA of Sweden).

Gagli had a quiet start to his final round, carding nine consecutive pars. However, he opened the back nine with bogeys on holes 10, 11 and 12.

He immediately hit back with a birdie on the par-four 13th, but lost a further two shots on the next two holes.

Seemingly unphased that his lead could be deteriorating, Gagli birdied the tricky par-three 17th, before a magnificent second shot on the par-five 18th left him with a simple two-putt to finish with a birdie, and card a round of 73 (+2), for a three-round total of 211 (-3).

The competition completed a fantastic week for the Italian, after he finished tied third in the PGAs of Europe’s Fourball Championship just a few days previous, and now takes home the €3,800 first prize.

“Obviously it has been a good week, a good experience…I finished third with Canonica in the Fourball and I won the Pro-Am, so it has been a great week for me.

“I will try [to come back next year], but I would like to play on the main tour next year, but obviously if not, I would like to come here.”

In second place and three shots back, was the PGA of Sweden’s Bjorn Pettersson, after a three-over third round of 74, gave him a total of 214 (E).

“I am pretty pleased with second place…I tried to get it going today, but it was a little bit too tough,’ said the Swede.

“I knew Lorenzo [Gagli] was going to post a decent number…I tried my best, but it wasn’t enough. It was very windy…a lot of crosswinds made it difficult, and it came from the other direction than normal.”

Pettersson started on the 10th and made two bogeys and two birdies to reach the turn in 36 (E), but started to struggle with the high winds and bogeyed holes four, eight and nine.

“It’s been a great week, such a good start for the season…I like being down here and the weather has been pretty decent, and the golf course is always good. For sure [I’ll be back next year]…I love being here at Lumine, so I’m going to be here again.”

Making up the top three was Gagli’s Fourball partner and fellow PGA of Italy Professional, Emanuele Canonica. The Italian cared five bogeys on his front nine, but recovered to come home in 34 (-2) and give him a round of 74, and a total of 217 (+3) for the competition.

The Team Pro-Am Competition was won by the team consisting of PGA of France Professional, Eric Colletta, and amateurs, Pierre FedrigoJ Baptiste Montaut and Simon Cohen. The quartet led after all three rounds and carded a fantastic final round stableford score of 83 points (-11), to give them a total of 256 points (-40).

They were two points clear of the team lead by PGA of Great Britain & Ireland Professional, Simon Williamson, who also carded a Round 03 score of 83 points for a 254 point total.

“We’re delighted, we played very consistently for all three of the rounds, and we were just pipped at the post…it was nip and tuck, but the better team won in the end,” said Williamson’s team, David Allott, Susan Allott and Brian Gill. “We’ve had a great week, and I think we’re going to do it again next year…it has been really well organised.”

Finishing in third place with 246 points were Itamar Cohen (PGA of Israel), Mordechai FishmanArieh Heanig and Zvi Herskoviz.

Final Round Magic cliches Fourball Championship for Hendriksen & Ruth

The PGA of Great Britain & Ireland’s Paul Hendriksen & James Ruth produced a dazzling final round to win the 2017 Fourball Championship presented by the Costa Daurada, with a -17 total (197).

Conditions at Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Club in Spain were testing, as they had been all week, with gusts reaching up to 50kph. However, unphased by the high winds, the British duo carded an extraordinary seven-under round of 64 to take home the €6,150 first prize.

“They were such difficult conditions out there today,” said Hendriksen.  “So we were just pleased to be able to come in with a good score and sit in the clubhouse and let the rest of them try and battle it out, so we’re really pleased.”

“We knew we were going to have to play well today to catch the leaders, and that the wind would be a good thing as if we could shoot a low score then it was going to be tough for everybody to get past it,” added Ruth.

“I play a lot of golf with Paul…and we know each other really well, so that helps a lot…plus we were both in play on pretty much every hole so it was good to not put pressure on either one and that was key really.”

Going into Round 03, the PGA of GB&I Professionals trailed the overnight leaders, Sixto Casabona Navarro &Carlos García Simarro (PGA of Spain), by four shots and were seemingly out of contention.

But many of the 48 PGA Professional pairs that had made it through the two round cut struggled to get into a rhythm and scoring on the Lakes Course was more conservative than it had been on the previous two days.

Having reached the turn in five-under, Hendriksen & Ruth began the back nine with a birdie on the 10th, followed by five pars. Unaware of the scores of the final group behind them, the Brits birdied the par-five 16th and closed their round with two pars; enough to secure the title.

“We had -20 in mind but the wind was a lot stronger than we thought it was going to be…we ended up missing out for birdie on the last, which we thought may not have been enough, but as it happens it was,” said Hendriksen.

Second place fell to coach and pupil combo, Casabona Navarro & García Simarro, who only managed two birdies in their final round of 70 (-1) finishing two shots behind the winners with a three-round total of 199 (-15).

“When you start the last round in first position, then it is difficult to play, but we played very solid tee-to-green,” said Casabona Navarro. “I think the competition is good and next year I think we have a very good chance to take the trophy.”

“It’s hard for us to be at the top, because I do not practice as I am teaching,” said García Simarro, the ‘coach’ of the pair.  “So in the last round it’s difficult for me to hit the ball as well as the last two days…but we are very happy with second position!”

There was a tie for third place between Lorenzo Gagli & Emanuele Canonica (PGA of Italy) and Liam Murray & Xavier Puig (PGA of Spain), both of whom finished at -13 (201).

European Tour winner, Canonica, said, “We didn’t lose the position in which we started – we started third and finished third – and it was a very tough day. We don’t have a lot of chances to play Fourball around the world or in Italy so this one is the only tournament where we can come and have fun to play Fourball.”

Gagli added, “It has been a pleasure to play with Emanuele and I am happy with third place because probably it was too difficult to catch 17-under.”

Similarly, the PGA of Spain pair, Murray & Puig, ended their round in style, carding birdies on the final two holes to finish the day with an even-par round of 71.

“We are happy about the tournament because tied-third is a good result,” explained Puig. “But it was a pity about the final holes – from 12-16 today we played four bad holes – he hit a bad shot, I hit a bad shot – and in Fourball you pay for that, but then we finished birdie-birdie which is ok.”

“It was really tough,” added Murray.  “We felt like we were dropping off the pace a little bit, but turns out we probably weren’t.  The scoring was not that great apart from the guys that won who played fantastic to shoot seven-under in that wind.”
