A group of four players is leading in Servizitalia Open after first round with 68, four under par. Alps Tour leader, Italy’s Nino Bertasio is one of them, alongside young compatriot amateur Jacopo Guasconi, France’s Clément Berardo and Austria’s Tobias Nemecz.

All Alps Tour players had a week off last week or to be more precise, there was no tournament on the schedule but Bertasio was indeed on course, in Scotland. The Alps Tour ranking leader was on Matteo Manassero’s bag during AAM Scottish Open in Aberdeen and the team finished on fourth place in windy conditions. He could feel and live inside European Tour for a week.

Bertasio is the man to catch and this congested leaderboard offers perspective of nice battle and suspense. On Bertasio’s toes, Clément Berardo who had a brilliant beginning of season in Egypt with two podiums but ever since he has been looking to recover this moment. He ended on a brilliant last round in Belgium a fortnight ago and he seemed to still be in good form.

Nemecz is aiming to walk on his brother’s steps as the latter finished in Alps Tour top 5 last year and currently plays on Challenger Tour. Tobias’ best result this year is a fourth place in Peugeot Open beginning of June.

No less than nine players only one shot behind the leaders and the projected cut is level par.
