Rising Spanish golfer Adrian Otaegui has reportedly missed out on European Tour First 59 Round but has earned 2-shot lead at Pretoria at the halfway stage.
The 22-year-old golfer would be taking 2-shot lead onto 3rd round of Tshwane Open.
9 birdies in first sixteen holes, including consecutive 5 from the 8th, has left the golfer in need of couple of two more if he has to break 60 barrier. However, this erstwhile British Boys champ narrowly failed in chipping in from edge of green on seventeenth & dropped his sole shot of that day post finding his bunker off tee.
The world # 403 got a halfway net total of eleven under par, a couple of shots over Merrick Bremner from South Africa – who birdied 4 of his final 6 holes to add 66 to the opening 65.
Merrick’s compatriots Trevor Fisher Junior & Keith Horne, were one shot back on 8 under alongside David Horsey from England and Italian Edoardo Molinari.
Adrian, who had erstwhile Ryder Cup lead Jose Maria as his mentor, played a fair share of junior golf sessions at Jose’s home club at Fuenterrabia.
Graeme McDowell has just made the cut two times in 7 appearances at US Masters. He has been not very successful compared to other majors. For a good measure, this week, he would arrive at Augusta still attempting to shake off an ankle problem which forced him to withdraw from Valero Texas Open 10 days earlier following the very first round.
In fact, he is also engaged in wrestling with his game. He is beginning to confront the fact that he has let himself to wander from the mental advance that once gave him so much success. He is one of a favored few to have won 1 major but it is not enough.
He told that he feels like he has been at crossroads recently, he is attempting to get himself back to the player he was and the way he thought rather than being this guy who is attempting to be perfect and has less patience and gets frustrated and angered quicker than he ever did. He is attempting to take a step back and realize that you are supposed to be happy when you get to this point.
