Round 1

Victor Aguilar beat Goeran Appelgren 4&3
9 July… Perfect golf weather at Schoenfeld. Victor was off to a good start while Goeran had his usual problems early and was three down before he knew what was happening. Some wayward shots by Victor allowed Goeran to get a few back and was only one down by the turn. Some sloppy shots later, Goeran was four down before staging a last come back. Two down after 13, but Victor would have nothing of it and took 14 and 15 for a 4 and 3 win.

Thank you, Victor, for a nice round of golf and ditto lunch on the terrace! Congratulations and good luck against Alvaro Cortes.


Round 2

Jae-Sung Lee beat Behrouz Shahandeh 1 up
Himberg (West Course), Tuesday, 15 July - Jae-Sung Lee parred the par-five 18th to halve the hole and assure a one-hole victory over Behrouz Shahandeh.

The match had been closely fought in a friendly and spirited atmosphere. Jae-Sung took the lead for the first time on the 17th in spite of giving a stroke to Behrouz. His stone-dead pitch left little chance for Behrouz who was bunkered after a wayward pitch.

Behrouz had started well and kept Jae-Sung’s excellent long game at bay with some clutch putts and taking a one-hole lead at the turn.  He went two-up with a par on the par-five 10th, which marked the biggest difference between the two players during the entire match.

The match, however, turned on the 11th. After both players’ tee-shots had found water on the par-three hole, Jae-Sung’s slightly topped third shot appeared to be flying over the green until it hit the flag and dropped down three metres from the hole. He subsequently won the hole and further built on it draining a four-metre putt on the 12th to draw level.

The match then  seesawed from then on with Behrouz winning the 13th and 15th, while Jae-Sung who was driving long and straight won the 14th and 16th. The long par-four 17th thus became the determining hole with Jae-Sung going one-up and holding firm on the 18th to halve the hole and win the match 1 up.
