This result places them as sole leaders with one stroke ahead of Piti Martínez Bernal from Cadiz and Natalia Escuriola from Castellón.
“It was a great first round. I started out playing very well, making several birdies, and after the seventh hole the two of us got along very well, even making birdies on the same holes. The greens were very good, luck has been that absolutely everything has gone in and with the course in these conditions, it has facilitated this great round, and we hope that tomorrow will be the same”, said Mireia Prat.
“This is the first time we played together. This modality is a different mentality, you can be more aggressive. You lean on and guide yourself in your partner. It is a modality that we like because we do not usually play this type of tournament, and we enjoy it a lot”, said María Laura Elvira
Piti Martínez Bernal and Natalia Escuriola delivered a card of 64 shots with an eagle, seven birdies and two bogeys and allowed them to be in the main match. The final day will be played under the greensome modality (so called the modality in which the two players execute their tee shot and then choose one of them and continue until the end of the hole with alternate shots).
The second and last day will start at 9:00 a.m. from the 1st tee. The main game will start at 9:40 a.m.
The Costa Brava is a coastal region of Catalonia overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, and which extends from Blanes to the French border, that is, over the entire maritime stretch of the province of Girona.
