Monday Front-Runner Weiss Retains the Two-Shot Lead in Chile

Lex Weiss was determined to participate on PGA TOUR this season. The issue was that he had no ranking, which destined him to Monday-qualifying matches. The plot has proceeded well as Weiss has gone from an ordinary contestant five days ago to the fifty-fourth hole forerunner in the Abierto de Chile initiated by Volvo. Weiss competed for nine holes of his second round on the morning of Saturday, concluding with a 2-under sixty-nine. Afterwards, he proceeded to the last grouping of the third round with Joaquin Niemann from Chile and Alex Rocha from Brazil and shot a 5-under sixty- six. He leads his counterparts, John Somers, an American, by two shots and is four in front of four participants who include Niemann, Toni Hakula, Augusto Núñe and Matt Ryan.

His Wish is to Lead Since Ben Polland

Finally, it is where Weiss wished to be precisely. He may now be quite ahead of the calendar. Weiss aimed at attempting to succeed in the season-opening match in Panama. Unfortunately, an attack of food poisoning ended those aspirations. Last week, he went back to the tour in Argentina, magnificently qualifying but retreating after sixteen holes. His second formal appearance has taken place better as he aims to be the first Monday front-runner to win the same week from the time Ben Polland won in the Opening of the 2018 Guatemala Stella Artois.

Weiss’s Saturday Performance

On Saturday, Weiss was quite dissatisfied in his match off the tree at Club de Golf Mapocho, stating that he never hit the ball appropriately. Still, with that harsh evaluation, he was excellent enough to make four front-nine birdies, comprising three of his first four holes. Later on his round, he topped up other two on number sixteen and seventeen, and only managed one bogey on number fourteen, for his sixty-six.
