Hi5 Pro Tour in Spain

Lloyd Saltman shows his class but

Zack goes out despite five birdies

Lloyd Saltman put together one of the best rounds since he turned pro to return a second-round, four-under-par 68 in the Hi5 Pro Tour's Villaitana Open at Benidorm, Spain today.
Saltman had five birdies, four of them in the last eight holes, as he improved by eight shots on his dismal first-day effort of 76. He beat the cut with ease in joint 14th place on level par 144.
Older brother Elliot also made it, with a shot to spare, with rounds of 78 and 72 for 150. He had four birdies as he qualified in joint 37th place.
Zack, the youngest of the three Saltman siblings and the rookie pro, was eliminated on 156 with rounds of 81 and 75. In his first round, Zack, pictured by Cal Carson Golf Agency, had a triple bogey and three double bogeys. In his second round he had the same number of birdies as Lloyd and more than Elliot but failed to beat the cut because he had three double bogeys.
Other Scots who survived were the Doherty brothers - Paul with a 72 for joint-fourth 142 and Jack with a 72 for 146
Spaniard Carlos Garcia leads the field by six shots after a brilliant second-round of 63, nine under par, for a 13-under tally of 131.
