BLEVINS FRANKS croquet FIVE 15-3-16.jpg

Double bogey

Both erstwhile European Challenge Tour leader Ricardo Santos and fellow Portuguese Filipe Lima failed to make the cut at last week’s Russian event.

Algarvean Santos will now struggle to regain his top ranking from England’s Tommy Fleetwood while almost assured a place on next season’s tour proper while Lima needs a run of good results to achieve the same status.

Meanwhile the latest ‘great’ to announce his presence at the October Portugal Masters is two-time Grand Slam tournament winner John Daly.
