Challenge Tour Moves to Switzerland
The Challenge Tour moves from southern Italy to the south of Switzerland this week for its annual date in the picturesque town of Ascona. This will be the third playing of the Credit Suisse Private Banking Open at the magnificent tree-lined Patriziale course on the shores of Lake Maggiore.
Bernardini leads by two in rain hit Ascona
Persistent rain brought a premature end to play on the opening day of the Credit Suisse Private Banking Open in Switzerland. Only half the field of 156, including Italy’s Marco Bernardini with 66, managed to complete their rounds before the Patriziale course became unplayable.
Credit Suisse Private Banking Open abandoned
The Credit Suisse Private Banking Open was abandoned after further morning rain was followed by Lake Maggiore overflowing on to the course.
Credit Suisse Private Banking Open Cancelled
Severe weather conditions that have plagued the tournament since it got underway, eventually forced the cancellation of the 2002 Credit Suisse Private Banking Open. Only a little over one hours play had been possible on day three of the tournament with round one still in progress. Italian Marco Bernardini had lead the tournament with an opening 66. Full report to follow.
Relentless Rain Prevents Play in Ascona
No play was possible on the second day of the Credit Suisse Private Banking Open in Switzerland because of continual rain. The downpour, which has now lasted over 48 hours, has left fairways waterlogged and greens and bunkers flooded, while the forecast for Saturday is for more rain.
