Battle between Italy and France on winter day
It was a long, long day. After first round wednesday was suspended at 18h00 due to thunderstorms, once again the rain stopped players to go further on thursday morning at 10:00. Heavy rain flooded greens and course and play only resumed at 15h45 with more than 6 hours delay.
Still 59 players finished their round and Swiss Fredrik Svanberg fired amazing 61, 8 under par for best score of the round and same total. He was leading for a while but a pack of 4 players, two Italians and two Frenchmen aggregated -9 before the night came.
Among them, Sébastien Gos and Jérôme Lando-Casanova, both French and already winner this season facing experimented Alessio Bruschi and rookie Niccolo Quintarelli.
