Before the start of the Nordic League season, Lauri Ruuska played three Challenge Tour events in South-Africa. Those events resulted in missed cuts, but were good preparation for the first Nordic League tournament, Lumine Hills Open, played in the Lumine Golf Club in Spain on Feb. 23-25. With a solid -6 (69, 69, 71) Lauri reached the second top 3 of his career in the Nordic League.
“I’m of course happy about about the podium result, but a little annoyed that after a good start I was not able to put some pressure on the top guys. My game was two-fold throughout the tournament. Putting and driving worked really well, but there was a lot room for improvement in the approach shots. Overall I was happy with my game at this early stage of the season”, Lauri says.
Lauri’s next event, Nordic League tournament Lumine Lakes Open will be played on Feb. 28 – March 1 also in the Lumine Golf Club.
