Harper heads for range after two missed cuts
Liam Harper was back home in Ashford this week vowing to head straight back to the practice range after a disappointing start to his new Alps Tour season. The 23-year-old missed two cuts in three tournaments in Egypt, the latest in the Dreamland Pyramid Open in Cairo earlier this week after two successive four-over par rounds of 76. Before leaving for home, Harper posted a message on Instagram saying: “Been a tough month out here – not the results I was hoping for so back home.....to the practice ground!” Harper had fared better in the Red Sea Open at Ain Sokhna in Suez, last week, finishing 17th with a three-round total of 212 – four under for the tournament. He started well, shooting a four under 67, followed by rounds of 71 and 74. Harper failed to make the cut in the first tournament, the Ein Bay Open, finishing 13 over after rounds of 77 and 80.
