After shooting an 8-under 63 on Friday (which was Saturday in Manila), Englishman Dale Whitnell is currently leading the Mallorca Open by one stroke. Whitnell’s score was able to tie the course record that was established the day before by fellow Englishman Marcus Armitage.
At Son Muntaner Golf Club, Whitnell moved to the top of the leaderboard after achieving an eagle on the par-5 11th hole in addition to making six birdies on the course.
“It’s a bit softer today, the wind wasn’t as strong this morning as it was yesterday afternoon, so you could be a bit more aggressive,” said Whitnell.

“The wind was not as strong this morning as it was yesterday afternoon.” “I just got a few more putts close to the hole, but a few of them missed,” Whitnell said.
Ryan Fox also impressed with a score of 7 under 64, which put him in second place heading into the weekend by one shot.
All three players, Maximilian Kieffer, Hugo Leon, and Rasmus Hojgaardare, were behind by three shots.
Armitage recorded a 3-over 74 the day after setting a new record for the course, which caused him to fall five shots behind Whitnell’s pace.

Additionally, there is a fantastic course here where championship golf can be played.
