The golfers of the DP World Tour travel quickly towards the conclusion of the usual weekly event. In fact, we have reached just one round from the end of the Andalucia Masters (prize money of 3.75 million dollars), an event created in 2010 to replace the older Volvo Masters.

In the lead we find a couple who seem to want to try the decisive push.

Andalucia Masters, results

The leading duo is made up of German Matti Schmid and Danish Jeff Winther. Both travel tied with a score of -14 (202 shots) and boast a two-point margin over the Spaniard Adrian Otaegui.

The combative host will sell his life dearly in the Sunday round as he is looking for a back-to-back after the success achieved in the last edition. On the par 72 course of the Real Club de Golf Sotogrande in fourth position with a score of -11 we find the Frenchman Jeong weon Ko, followed by the Englishman Richard Mansell, the German Nick Bachem and the Polish Adrian Meronk.

The latter climbs 15 positions thanks to a -6 session. He placed eighth in cohabitation with -9 for the South African Louis De Jager and for the Spanish Adri Arnaus. The Iberian is the best of the day on the sidelines of the sensational -7 signed today which allows him to make a leap of 35 positions.

-8 and the top ten was finally closed by the Dutchman Will Besseling, the Danish Thorbjorn Olesen, the Englishman Dan Bradbury, the Frenchman Victor Perez and the Finnish Tapio Pulkkanen. Nothing to do for Francesco Molinari.

The Turin rider, the only Italian representative to have made the cut, had a bad day, falling to 64th place with an overall score of +1. Tomorrow there will be the last and decisive round with Schmid and Winther who will duel for success, but will have to contain the possible returns of their pursuers.

Andalusia (Spanish: Andalucía) is one of the seventeen autonomous communities of Spain. It is made up of eight provinces: Almería, Cadiz, Cordoba, Granada, Huelva, Jaén, Malaga and Seville, capital of the autonomous community of Andalusia.

It is the most populous autonomous community in Spain with 8,403,350 inhabitants (2017) and the second largest, which, combined with its history and culture, gives it a rather significant weight within the Spanish nation.

Located in southwestern Europe, it is bordered to the west by the Republic of Portugal; to the south by the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea, the Alborán Sea and the British overseas territory of Gibraltar; to the north by Extremadura and Castile-La Mancha; east from Murcia.
