Warren matches 2010 course record
Latest news from the final round of the Celtic Manor Wales Open is that Marc Warren has equalled the course record of 63.
Marc Warren today joined fellow Scot Stephen Gallacher as a course record holder at Celtic Manor when he too shot a dazzling 63 on the final day of the Celtic Manor Wales Open.
Warren even had a bogey on his card as he matched Gallacher’s display which came in Saturday’s third round.
Resuming four over par and with no chance of catching the current leader Marcel Siem, who was at 11 under overnight, the 29-year-old Scot turned in 33 and birdied the 10th and 11th.
His dropped shot came on the next, but Warren birdied the next two and then eagled the driveable 377-yard 15th.
With the long 18th still to come there was an obvious chance to lower the mark, but Warren parred the last three for an inward 30 and so finished the tournament at four under.
Siem’s lead was cut from three to two when Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell, round in 64 yesterday, sank an 18-footer on the first and birdied the long second as well.
Last week’s winner Luke Donald also came into the picture as he eagled the second and birdied the fourth and fifth, and Welsh hope Rhys Davies, who followed three birdies in four holes by holing his 170-yard eight-iron for an eagle two at the eighth was likewise moving up.
Both were now three off the [ace in a for third on eight under with Gallacher, Dane Thomas Bjorn, England’s Richard McEvoy and Robert Rock and Dutchman Maarten Lafeber.
