Jonzon moves ahead of top pair in Spain

Sweden’s Michael Jonzon, with one European Tour win in 290 starts and fighting for his future, leads the Castello Masters in Spain with a round to play.

Sweden’s Michael Jonzon, with one European Tour win in 290 starts and fighting for his future, leads the Castello Masters in Spain with a round to play.

The former Portuguese Open champion is 158th on the money list and needs to finish first or second to be sure of keeping his Tour card.

But even after a six-under-par 65 swept him to 16 under, Jonzon is under enormous pressure because joint second are defending champion Sergio Garcia on his home course and also Martin Kaymer, who can return to the top of the Order of Merit by winning his first event since breaking toes in a go-kart crash in August.

For a while it looked as though England’s Sam Hutsby, playing only his third Tour event as a professional, was going to provide the story of the day.

The 20-year-old from Hampshire, runner-up in the British Amateur in June and a Walker Cup debutant last month, kept pace with Jonzon for much of the round, but he bogeyed the last for a 66 that sent him down to fourth place on 14 under.
