But Claverie, a starter from the first matches of the morning, is not only at the top of the table, he is accompanied by the Catalan player, who is the current winner of the Order of Merit 2021, Alex Esmatges, who late in the afternoon As the sun was already setting on La Arboleda, he scored another 65 (-7) which could have been less than not making three putts on the last hole.

“I had a long putt that I thought was going to go fast, but it fell too short and I missed the second one. But other than that bad experience, I’m playing really well, hitting really well and I’m already recovered from my injuries.

This course has a trick and you have to know how to play it”, declared the player of the Raimat course. A result that Luis Claverie had already established in the morning, starting three birdies on the course (10, 11, 12, since the Canary was left on the 10th hole) and adding another four birdies for the back nine.

Only one mistake on hole 1, the most complicated today. “In the morning there was no wind at all and we played very calmly, and it’s a different course to the day of practice and the Pro-Am, which was very windy.

I hit really well from tee to green, hit the fairways and left some really good putts.” Claverie is also leader of the Senior classification which will also have prizes for the first three. “That’s life.

We shoot for years, and with these young people you have to be very fine and precise because they take us several meters away and you have to wade with precision and make a lot of putts. Seve’s design enchanted me, and it’s a great area that we didn’t know about.

Now we are going to keep it very present”, commented Luis. In second position, Marc Sabriá, a regular in the Alps and the Challenge Tour, Gerard Piris and Juan Salama from Madrid, all tied at -6, only one header .

There are just three shots between the top ten, which makes the second round, with wind expected in the morning, an exciting day of golf. The cut will be made by the first forty ads with the most ties.
