Ondřej Lieser continues to collect invitations for the biggest Czech tournaments. After winning his first round of qualification in Zbraslav on Monday, when he secured an invitation to Kunětická Hora, he shot the lowest score again on Tuesday. He also got the right to start in the second Challenge Tour organized by Relmost.
In the third round, the professional from GC Mstětice will try to win a hattrick. Players will compete for two invitations to the biggest golf event on Czech territory, D + D Real Czech Masters, part of the European Tour.
In addition, Lieser is also on the best way to win a major portion of the 250,000 Czech crowns. The player who will have the lowest score after three rounds earns 45,000 CZK. Lieser scored 65 shots in the first round. In the second, he played 67 and is in lead by 5 shots.
He praised his collaboration with the new caddy David Zadražil (pictured) after 2nd round. Especially his help on the greens was exceptional, according to Lieser.
“So far we have five rounds together and we have a total score of -26. So, I would say that it’s quite a good collaboration. He is the best green reader,” laughed so far sovereign Lieser, describing where he saw the origin of his high-quality game this week.
The 25-year-old player started in the afternoon flights, but this time his round did not come without loss as the previous day. Lieser began with four pars, then he lost first shot on 5th hole. But he fixed it with two birdies. Three holes later he even played eagle.
But then he erased it with doublebogey. Lieser dealt well with this situation and scored another four birdies from the remaining seven holes. It was enough to win. The runner up Liam Robinson was just one shot worse. The Englishman, as well as the Czech player, won invitations to both Czech Challenge Tour stops.
Play off between three players must have decided about the winner of the remaining invite. On the 2nd additional hole Myles Frost scores a birdie and secured himself last wild card to Prague Golf Challenge taking place at the beginning of July at Prague City Golf Club.
The biggest bad luck so far has Manuel Trappel. The Austrian lost the play off with Liam Robinson on Monday and was missing one shot to get to play off on Tuesday.
