Woke up early by Buenavista standards at 08.45 full of good intentions about doing this report and being on the course by 10am to catch the first group about the 3rd hole. But as I sit down to write this report it’s 11am and I do feel somewhat guilty. But being one keen to work, I can report I have been interviewing one of the later starting players.
Day two was overcast and a bit cooler but stayed dry all day with a wind coming off the sea, like all good links courses should have as standard, making the course play a bit more difficult today. Day two is the day the girls have to go for it as the projected cut is +3 and around 60 will, I’m afraid, be going home tonight with nothing but an expense to show for their efforts. Golf is a bit like the Ann Robinson show 15 to 1; don’t make the cut and you’re going home with nothing.
On a brighter note the girl that Tenerife Magazine and I are following, Coriesande Lee, made her first ever cut in a professional tournament and will be playing on day 3 thus earning her a pay cheque of some kind from the ladies” European Tour. We’ll have to see how she plays and what her final score is to find out just how much her cheque will be for. Whatever it is I”M sure Dad’s pleased as this week for once her expenses are not coming out of his pocket. Well done Cori.
England’s Melissa Reid shot a -2 to take her to -8 for the tournament, just one shot ahead of Scotland’s Vikki Lang and France’s Virginie La Goutte-Clement at -7. 4th is English veteran player Trish Johnson and she’s on -6 and well placed to make a move tomorrow. Some last minute mistakes on the last few holes saw a lot of players going out as they tried to make the dreaded cut to allow them to stay here at Buenavista Golf Course in Tenerife for the weekend.
We have a fantastic photo gallery on the Tenerife Magazine Flickr page of all the players in action here at Buenavista.
