Simon’s finishes in a nice 2nd place !! 🥈👏
Rosa, Christopher and Casper were trying to use the good starting point from yesterday and go after the victory. Things would go their way if they were to pick up the favorites from Kokkedal who were seven strokes ahead, but clearly achievable. All three players +2 for the round after the first six holes, which was respectable. On the next three holes, however, the team slid back a little and it was clear that Kokkedal would be very difficult to get. Now Helsingør, who were playing well, needed to be kept behind.
After a break in the game of an hour and a half due to heavy rain and the greens sitting under water, the players got back on the course and fought. Casper started a little bit out after the break while Rosa and Christopher came back.
In the 2nd round Rosa came in at +6, Christopher at +10 and Casper came with a very cold putter at +9. This led to a second place in the team series of +46, 11 strokes away from the winners from Kokkedal and 2 strokes in front of Helsingør. This was very satisfactory considering Simon’s qualifying as the fourth and last team in the national qualification in the East.
Individually, Casper is split 3s in +12, one shot from getting a place in a pro-am to Made In Denmark in three weeks in Himmerland. Rosa and Christopher will be split 8s in +17.
All in all, really nice fought by the team after a rainy day and an improvement of last year’s excellent result which was a fourth place.🏌️♀️🏌️♂️🏌️♂️👌
