Playing 35 in the first 9 and 32 in the second 9, Callum recorded birdies in the 4th, 7th and 18th holes while bogeying the 8th and 14th holes. However his shot of the day came in the par 3 16th hole where he sank a hole in one, earning him the 1000 Euros prize for the top placed professional.

The local onslaught was led by Hesbon Kutwa who returned a level score of 72, one better than Anil Shah.
