WILL ROEBUCK – ROUND 2, STAGE 2 PGA EUROPEAN TOUR SCHOOL, MURCIA, SPAIN
I’ve just spoken to Will who has shot his second consecutive 71 for a halfway total of 142 which is 2 under par. Most important is that Will has moved up 7 places to 22nd and is now within a qualifying position for the Final Stage in Girona next week.
He felt much better today and although he bogeyed holes 1 and 3 he then picked up 4 birdies but unfortunately dropped a shot at the 18th where he just didn’t commit to the shot. What is pleasing is that once again he had no 3-putts and conditions for the last 7 holes were wet and windy. However, his mind was in the right place and he is confident that he can maintain his progress.
There were some interesting developments today – his playing partners who shot 68 and 69 yesterday shot 73 and 76 today. Maybe nerves got to them following their good starts. The next couple of days will also see players creating pressure for themselves which will have a negative effect on their game. I expect Will to move on up the order as he has a lot of belief in himself at this time.
Long may that continue.
Happy golfing – Roger
