Edfors and Hanson hit the front in Holland
Two Swedes, Johan Edfors and Peter Hanson, head the field after the first round of the Fortis Challenge Open at a wet and windy Burggolf Purmerend near Amsterdam.
Edfors within sight of Second Tour Title
Johan Edfors from Sweden is closing in on his second Challenge Tour title after maintaining his lead in the Fortis Challenge Open in Holland. The 27 year old carded a third round 69 for 203, 13 under par, and is two strokes ahead of South African Ryan Reid and three clear of the rest of the field.
Edfors Secures Second Title With Closing 70
Sweden's Johan Edfors collected his second Challenge Tour title of the year when he won the Fortis Challenge Open in Holland. A closing round of 70 for 273, 15 under par, gave the 27 year old from Gothenburg a two stroke winning margin over fellow Swede, Kalle Brink, who returned an eight-birdie 65, the best of the day.

De Vooght Defends in The Netherlands
Didier de Vooght of Belgium will defend the Fortis Bank Challenge Open at Burggolf Purmerend, in the Netherlands just seven months after winning the title. A change in dates means that the tournament, played in October last year, moves to this week's May date at a new venue on the European Challenge Tour Schedule.
Edfors Romps Four Clear with Second 67
Another wet and windy day in Holland presented tough conditions for most of the field at Burggolf Purmerend, but not for Sweden’s Johan Edfors, who went four shots clear of the field.
