Round 2 Player Quotes 

Brandon Kewalramani, 25, from the United States of America, concludes the 2nd round of the 2024 Alps de Roquetas de Mar in the lead with a two-day total of 10 under-par. He was tied for 3rd place after yesterday’s round 1 with a 4 under-par, 66 while today he shot a 5 under-par, 65 making 6 birdies and 1 bogey. This is his 1st year competing on the Alps Tour, and he has been performing well since the beginning of the season. He won the 2024 Austrian International Par 3 Championships, which took place ahead of this year’s 2024 Gösser Open. After he concluded his round 2, Kewalramani commented: “I played really solid today, the putter was working well today, I felt really comfortable over the putts, my iron play was great too. I felt like I could really give myself a lot of birdie chances today, and I was able to convert them. When I did get in trouble, my putter was able to help me out.” He added that he: “hasn’t looked at the scoreboard yet, and I probably won’t be looking much at the leaderboard tomorrow. I like to stay in my own world out there and I will try to do the same tomorrow, I’ll keep my head down and mind my own game and hopefully after 18 holes tomorrow it’ll work out.” When asked about potentially earning his first win on the tour tomorrow, Kewalramaniexplained: “It would obviously mean a lot to win, but you know if it doesn’t happen tomorrow, the experience I gained from myself in the situation last week in France in Bordeaux and again here will help my game regardless of what happens. Hopefully, I will try to take more advantage on the shorter par4s as I feel that’s where I left some shots out there today, but all in all, I will try to keep doing what I’ve done the past two days.” Kewalramani also wants to: “Thank the Alps Tour, the host club Club de Golf Playa Serena, and the Spanish Federation for putting on such a great event. The golf course is in great shape, and it’s truly a pleasure to compete here. I’m looking forward to another round tomorrow.”

Italy’s Mattia Comotti, 24, is in a 4-way tie for 2nd place after two rounds at the 2024 Alps de Roquetas de Mar. He was tied for 3rd place at 4 under-par after the 1st round of the tournament and shot a 2 under-par, 68 today with 1 eagle, 3 birdies and 3 bogeys to move into the 4-way tie for 2nd place with a two-day total of 6 under-par. Comotti won his 1st Alps Tour title at the 2024 Memorial Giorgio Bordoni presented by AON. He turned professional at the end of July 2023, so this is his 1st full playing season on the Alps Tour as a professional player. After his round, Comotti commented: “Today I played very solidly, especially my long game, my putting wasn’t however as sharp as it was yesterday. Overall, it still is a positive score. The course is proving itself to be quite tough; the scores are much higher than what I expected at the beginning of the week. It’s a course which is very difficult to put a very low under-par round together, maybe because the greens aren’t extremely fast or because the back nine are quite hard.” When asked about being in the lead after the morning wave, he added: “I didn’t expect to be in the lead for the moment, most likely this afternoon, someone will pass me, but this morning with no wind and relatively easy pins I thought the scores were going to be lower than what they ended up being.” Looking ahead into tomorrow’s final round where he will have a chance to earn his 2nd Alps Tour title, Comotti plans to “take time to rest and recharge the batteries this afternoon as it will be a long day tomorrow where a lot of wind is expected so I want to be rested and ready for the new day.” 

Maxime Legros, 22, from France, concludes his round 2 of the 2024 Alps de Roquetas de Mar with a total score of 6 under-par and finds himself in a 4-way tie for 2ndplace alongside Mattia ComottiMario Galiano Aguilar and Marcos Pastor. He shot a 4 under-par, 66 in today’s round with 5 birdies and 1 bogey. After his round he commented: “Today went very well, I have been playing better for a couple a weeks now and today I finally felt confident over the ball. I really enjoyed the course this week! It’s fair and rewards you when you are able to hit good shots. We must take advantage of the front 9 because on the back 9, there are no par 5s, and birdies are much tougher to get.” Legros tomorrow plans on:“Just keep doing what I have been doing the past couple of days. I’ll have to start off strong and make a few birdies on the front 9 to set me up well for the rest of the tournament. This afternoon, I’ll make a good recovery, and tomorrow, I’ll just try to stick to my strategy and hope it goes as planned!” 

Spain’s Mario Galiano Aguilar, 28, moves into a 4-way tie for 2nd place after two rounds of the 2024 Alps de Roquetas de Mar. He was tied for 18th place at 1 under-par after the 1st round and shot a 5 under-par, 65 in today’s round 2 to conclude with a two-day total of 6 under-par. Galiano Aguilar has earned several Top 10 finishes on the Alps Tour throughout his playing career but is looking to break through and earn his 1st win on the tour. After his 5-under-par round, Galiano Aguilar commented: “I’m very happy, it’s been an important change from yesterday to today. Yesterday I didn’t hit it well from the tee, but I was able to get 1 under-par round.  When I finished, I changed the set-up of the Driver. I gave it one more degree, and today it went much better. From the tee, I played phenomenal today, and I have also putted better, and it was visible in my results.” He also added that he’s: “hitting the ball much more comfortably but especially with myself. At the beginning of the year, I decided not to listen to anyone, and work on my own and that has been the key for me, I am much more comfortable in all aspects. I started the season playing well in Egypt, and that has helped to give me confidence and keep going so far this season.”

In the 4-way tie for 2nd place alongside ComottiLegros, and Galiano Aguilar with a two-day total of 6 under-par there is Spain’s Marcos Pastor. He currently holds the course record at Club de Golf Playa Serena with a 64 back in 2013 when his fellow countryman Pol Bech won the Alps Tour event. He was tied for 3rd place after yesterday’s round 1 with a 4 under-par, 66 and during today’s round 2 he made 4 birdies and 2 bogeys for a 2 under-par, 68.
