Katrin leads when the Asian Tour tees off after Covid’s break – GOLF Sports

John Catlin of the United States took the lead in the One Shot Clubhouse at the Blue Canyon Phuket Championship on Thursday, and the Asian Tour is back after a 20-month break.

The 9th and 15th holes of the par 5 Eagles helped the four tour winners achieve 65, 7 under pars in a round ahead of Taiwan’s Chan Shih-chang.

The $ 1 million tournament on Phuket’s idyllic holiday island has made its first shot on the tour since the Malaysia Open in March 2020.

Homestar Phachara Khongwamai was disappointed as the last bogey left a 5-under par and took second place share with South Africa’s Ian Snyman in third place Thailand.

Australia’s merit leader, Wade Ohmsby, is currently ranked four shots from Katrin, who came to Phuket after finishing in the top 10 of the $ 9 million DP World Tour Championship in Dubai on Sunday. He was one of the 14 players who finished in 69.

The Blue Canyon event is just a few of Australia’s legendary figures Greg Norman, backed by $ 200 million in Saudi Arabia, unveiled a new series of 10 events from 2022 that rocked the world of golf. It will be held a week later.

The world’s No. 123 Katrin has been doing well in recent years, winning three European Tour titles in addition to Asian titles.

“I made some long ones, I happened to play well, and I used Per Five,” said the 31-year-old.

He sealed the eagle with a 30-foot putt on number 9, hit three woods on 9 feet, and set up number 2 on number 15.

Katrin previously said he was based in a Thai seaside resort in Hua Hin and was rewarded for his friendliness.

“The last time I was here was May 2020. As I’ve said for the last four years, it feels like a second home,” he added.
