Swiss Challenge presented by Swiss Golf
08.06.2019

Christofer Blomstrand continued his love affair with the Swiss Challenge Presented by Swiss Golf by adding a seven under par 64 to his opening 66 to seize control at the halfway stage at Golf Sempachersee.

The Swede leads by three on 12 under par after carding the low round of Day Two, with Aaron Cockerill, Lars van Meijel and Ricardo Santos sharing second place on nine under par.

Blomstrand finished tied fourth at last year’s Swiss Challenge and although he is unable to put his finger on why he has enjoyed success in the Swiss mountains, he admits being a good ball striker on the tight fairways helps his cause.

One shot further back on seven under par is Prague Golf Challenge runner-up Mathieu Fenasse, Finland’s Oliver Lindell and Scottish duo Calum Hill and Duncan Stewart.

In total, 66 players survived the 36-hole cut, among them the three Swiss PGA Playing Pros Marco Iten (-4/T21), Benjamin Rusch (-3/T31) and Mathias Eggenberger (-2/T42).

After his 65 and third place on Thursday, Marco Iten lost some ground on Friday. "I did not play worse, but my putts just didn’t want to fall".

The second-best Swiss PGA Pro is currently Benjamin Rusch. After his 68 card on the starting day, he secured the cut with a solid par round. "It was a struggle for me. I often did not come near the flag.”

Based on his consistent game with two rounds of 70, Mathias Eggenberger completes the field of the three Swiss PGA Pros on the weekend.
