As Masters fever grips the golf world, those dreaming of one day joining the likes of Woods and McIlroy down Magnolia Lane began First Stage Qualifying School across three Alps Tour venues on Wednesday. Of the 161 players teeing up, there will be a total of 86 slots to join the 58 others already qualified by exemption to Final Stage.

Leading the Irish hopefuls at Terre dei Consoli golf club is Alps Tour regular, Simon Bryan who carded five birdies in a one-over par round of 73. With 36 players advancing from the venue after Thursday’s final round, Bryan sits in 14th place overnight with Kilkenny’s Luke Donnelly and Rhys Clarke, who had two birdies each on Wednesday, also on track to make it two shots further back at three-over par. Wexford Golf Club’s Brad Cohen sits in a precarious tie for 36th at five-over after carding a 77 in round one.

The players tee off Thursday morning in the decisive round at 8:00 am on the Golf Nazionale and Terre dei Consoli Golf Club courses and at 8:30 am on the Parco de’ Medici course. Should there be a tie on any of the courses, then a hole by hole playoff will be used to determine the players for the last qualified spot and alternates. The weather will be a little less favourable than today being forecast to be cloudy and with the possibility of occasional showers in the afternoon.
