Eriksen back in Gecko Tour action in Spain

Qualicum Beach’s Brayden Eriksen is playing in his third Gecko Tour event since his return from the winter break.

Qualicum Beach’s Brayden Eriksen is back in action on the Gecko Tour in Spain, playing in his third event since his return from the winter break.

Eriksen missed the cut after posting an opening round of plus-seven in the San Roque Club–Finca Cortesin Golf Club event.

This marks the second straight event that Eriksen has missed making the cut after narrowly missing in his last event at the Marbella Golf Country Club–Santa Clara Golf Marbella event.

In his first event back from his winter break, Eriksen finished in a tie for 15th place, with a final score of plus-11.

The La Canada Golf Club–Almenara Golf Club event proved to be a tough one, with the first-place finisher, Mario Galiano Aguilar of Spain, the only golfer to finish under par (minus-one).

With three events played, there are two events left to go for Eriksen on the Gecko Golf Tour.

From there, Eriksen plans on heading over to the United Kingdom in search of earning his tour card for the EuroPro Tour.
