Paul Broadhurst leads going into the final day

Today saw the second round of the 2019 Farmfoods European Senior Masters take place with two-time Senior Major winner Paul Broadhurst taking the lead going into the final day.

Paul put in a stunning performance to score -4 today taking his total to -7 going into tomorrow’s  dramatic last day. His round included sinking a remarkable birdie on the 4th.

Event host Peter Baker started the day as leader but struggled to replicate his form from Friday. One double bogey and three bogies meant his round ended with a score of +2 taking his total to -4 and he’ll be needing a great round tomorrow to be in with a chance of taking home the trophy and €50,000 prize.

In the end today saw some of the event’s biggest names tussling at the top of the leaderboard with 1991 Masters winner Ian Woosnam OBE and 1999 Open champion Paul Lawrie OBE both putting in fantastic rounds to finish on -6 joining a number of players in second place just a shot off the lead.

This included Australian star Peter Fowler, former European Tour player Gary Evans, six time European Tour winner Thomas Levet, Argentine Mauricio Molina and Austrian player Markus Brier.

Speaking on his round he said: “It was a bit of a rollercoaster of a round. There was a lot of good stuff including the eagle and I made a lot of birdies but I also made quite a few bogies. So I will be practicing my iron play ahead of the final day.

“The conditions were quite wet out there so I will be taking this into account too. A lot depends on the weather, if it’s really windy a level par round might be enough.

Today also saw the end of the amateur tournament come to an end with Team Wilson come out on top. The team’s amateur Jeremey Wilson was joined by two-time European Tour winner James Kingston as they scored -16 to take victory.

At the night’s prize giving ceremony they walked away with a Burridge glass trophy, pair of Duca del Cosma shoes, a Magnum of Moët & Chandon and a two night stay at Castillo Hotel Son Vida Mallorca.

Tomorrow will see the tournament come to an end as the professionals head out onto the Arden course for one final round. Every stroke will count as they look to be crowned champion and take home the €50,000 prize.
