Day 1 of DJGA Masters
Rain. Wind. More rain, and more wind. That must be the headlines from day 1 of the DJGA Masters 2021. The danish weather showed how harsh it can be golfing-wise, in the end of October.
The day started and ended with heavy amounts of rain, and strong winds, and the players where challenged on the highest level. Not only golfing wise, but as much on the mental side.
Who could stay calm and keep focusing on the things within their control, and who would loose the battle to the weather.
In the Mens category, two players managed to beat the weather, and shot impressive 76 (+4). Frederik Rykind-Blarke and Matti Røhmer Olsen are tied 1st, and their closest opponents are 5 shots after.
In the combined Girls/Ladies group, the visitor from Sweden, Elin Pudas Remler showed the rest of the danish competitors how to handle to course and the weather. She shot a solid 75 (+3) and has a 6 shot lead going into day two.
In the Boys U16 group, Mads Heller from Smørum Golf Klub shot an impressive 74 (+2), and has a 1 shot lead to the tied 2nd place, with Magnus Højgaard and Leopold Havsteen.
In the Girls U14 (+15 hcp) group, Claudia Offenbach managed the conditions best of the 4 girls, and shot a 98 (+26), and have a 3 shot lead to Karla Viola Mortensen heading into day 2.
We hope for a better weather day tomorrow, but unfortunately the forecast doesn’t really show that. Hurra for rain clothes, umbrellas and all-weather gloves.
