Host in the final
The Adamsters already had every reason to celebrate on Friday: their Sebastian Wittmann made it to the finals of the Challenge Tour for the first time, making it the first prize money in Europe’s young league at the home tournament organized by Father Franz.
In the best external conditions, without the predicted thunderstorms, the second day of the EURAM Bank Open ended on Friday in the Adamstal Golf Club. It was the lost day for remaining in the tournament.
“It was again an eventful day like yesterday with lots of ups and downs. I always came back and can now play more freely tomorrow. It was the first time for me that I made the cut in a Challenge competition, and my family was also happy with me, ”Sebastian cheered in view of the great success.
After rounds of 70 and 69 strokes, Wittman slipped into the weekend as 58th at 1 under par, whereby without the two double bogeys from the first matchday there would have been a lot more inside.
The 24-year-old Scot Calum Hill took the lead with a round of 64 and a total of 11 under par, but the 44-year-old Chilean veteran Felipe Aguilar also pushed ahead and overtook the German Marcel Schneider, who set a course record yesterday (round of 62) was on the way, but didn’t start until the afternoon. The German struck back and secured second place with nine under par.
