PALMELA, Portugal (Feb. 11, 2016) -- Guido Migliozzi may not be the
most well known amateur in the world, but the
Italian has a proven track record of top finishes, and
one major win under his belt.
The win came at the European Nations
Sotagrande Cup in 2014, where he defeated a field
that included Bradley Neil, who won the British
Amateur that same year. (Neil has since turned pro).
Today at Montado Resort, Migliozzi posted a
perfect scorecard with six birdies and not a single
bogey. Starting at the 10th, he eased into five-
straight pars before lighting it up with birdies on
Nos. 15-17. On the front nine, he birdied the first
two (that's five birdies in six holes) and he would
add another at the par-4 6th.
In two days, Migliozzi hasn't made a bogey; but
he did suffer a double the first round.
Giving chase are Owen Edwards of
Wales and Zacharias Agerbak. Both
players are two back at 5-under. Edwards, like
Migliozzi, had a perfect second round card. Agerbak's
was a little more exciting -- after posting even par
on his first nine (the back) he made the turn and
recorded 5 birdies against no bogeys for a nifty 31
coming home. Look out for this young man from
Edwards is just back from a trip to Australia,
where he finished in the final 32 at the Australian
Amateur and in the final 16 of the New South Wales
Amateur. He ranks 324 in the Golfweek/AmateurGolf.com World
Rankings, while Agerbak, who has risen through
the European junior rankings, isn't on our radar ...
