Two weeks another accomplishment was attained by Ross Fisher in the Open de Espana as back-to-back eagles were left by him towards the end of his second round.
Fisher made a BMW sports car value over #130,000 when he holed out with a four-iron to get a sensational albatross-two on the last hole at the BMW PGA Championship, capping a back-nine 28 about the West Course prior to heading to finish outside the top 30 following a disappointing 76 over the previous moment.
The Englishman needs a solid finish to the season to keep his European Tour card, arriving in Madrid ranked 118th in the Hurry Dubai, and he was flirting with the cut line when he made three straight bogeys to slip to a under with six holes to play with.
He was able to scramble a par in the first time, and Fisher drilled into a to six feet in the seventh that was long and rattled at the putt to an eagle-three, also much better was to follow in the second.
Fishers wedge from the centre of the fairway pitched before the pin and then spun back into the cup for another eagle, his fourth of the tournament, and he could now go in the weekend nicely placed around five under after rounds of 69 and 68.
I made a excellent up-and-down on six that was crucial, and then I hit a lovely drive and also a really pleasant soft four-iron in the second, said Fisher, who hasnt had a top-10 finish since the Nedbank Golf Challenge in November this past year.
I didnt realise how long it had been until I watched Mr (John E) Morgan put up his hands so I knew it was great and to roll that in was really, very fine – my third among the week.
Subsequently to hit that shot on the following hole and back it up with another eagle was nice. I was flag hunting on the last there trying to move three in a row! Id be surprised if Ive gone back to back eagles although I know Ive had a run of birdies in a row.
To have four this week, and I came quite close to my second albatross in three weeks, it literally finished four or three inches out of moving in. 2 eagles yesterday about the par fivesthey had been kind to me, and also to create another one after which hole a shooter it was a nice day.
