The 2nd day of the Italian league has been played last weekend in Paderno, the historical course that hosted European Championships in 1988.» Complete results
About the male event, after 1st day surprise with GSP Cusano victory and GSP Vergiate only in third place, it came back to normality with a victory for the title holder of GSP Vergiate.
They dominated the tournament from start to finish with a very good average of 21,6 which is really good on this course, that is quite old and not so easy and regular as it was in the past.
Vergiate only suffered a little bit of pressure from MT Amatese in the first two rounds, because at half tournament they were only 2 strokes behind Vergiate. But Amatese perfomance was not so good in the second part of the tournament, so that they also lost the 2nd place.
GSP Cusano, after a bad start (4th place after two rounds) got a very good comeback in the last two rounds and managed to catch the 2nd place with a very close match with Amatese, that was decided only at 17th lane of the 4th round, the very difficult "central hill" of Paderno which is probably one of the most difficult in the world.
The 2nd place is very important for Cusano, because they can arrive at the last day with 2 points advantage on GSP Vergiate.
Cusano and Vergiate are the only two teams that have chances to win the league in the last day: the team that will be better in Algund, felt course, on 26th May will be also the league winner.
It will be a very exciting day!
