The golfers of the DP World Tour continue to battle in the weekly event which, like a few days ago, is held in Spain. We have reached the end of the second round of the Andalucia Masters (prize money 3.75 million dollars), an event created in 2010 to replace the older Volvo Masters.

After the first 36 holes the ranking situation is still constantly evolving.

Andalucia Masters, results

In fact, we find a trio in command with a score of -9 (135 shots). The outriders bear the name of the Frenchman Jeong Weon Ko, the South African Louis De Jager and the Spaniard Adrian Otaegui.

The host, winner of the last edition, has every intention of trying to secure an important back-to-back in front of the friendly public. For them, a margin of one length over the Australian Daniel Hillier, alone in fourth position.

On the par 72 course of the Real Club de Golf Sotogrande, the Dane Jeff Winther, the Germans Matti Schmid and Nick Bachem, the French Mike Lorenzo-Vera, the Swiss Jeremy Freiburghaus and the Australian Jason Scrivener. Very short ranking with thirty participants enclosed in a handkerchief of 5 shots.

As far as Italian golfers are concerned, only Francesco Molinari makes the cut. The Turin rider jumps up 45 positions thanks to a solid -4 on the day which allows him to climb into the top 60 with a score of -1. Nothing to be done for a combative Guido Migliozzi, who leaves the tournament with par, and for Edoardo Molinari.

The latter finishes well outside of 100th place with a score of +3. Francesco Molinari (Turin, 8 November 1982) is an Italian golfer. He is the younger brother of Edoardo Molinari. On 22 July 2018 he entered the history of Italian golf by becoming the first Italian to have won a major tournament with the victory of the 147th British Open.[2] On 18 November 2018 he won the Race to Dubai and became the first Italian in the history of golf to win the prize of best European player.[3] He entered the history of world golf during the 42nd edition of the Ryder Cup held in France in 2018, becoming the first player to win 5 matches out of 5 bringing as many points to the European team, and he also scored the last point which gave the trophy to the hosts, defeating the world famous champion Phil Mickelson in a one-sided match.

His collaboration with the English player Tommy Fleetwood, a very famous couple who remained unbeaten in all their matches, will also remain in history.
