Domingo to challenge Le Sager
Spain’s Agus Domingo and Frenchman Kenny Le Sager maintained their leadership over the field. They both shot under par this morning in the cold atmosphere of Golf Club Montbéliard. They were in the same group and it was a great match to follow. They are -6 total and have a two stroke advantage over the closest challengers.
Spain’s Agus Domingo was very disappointed yesterday not to have a picture of him on the Alps Tour website. Was it a kind of a motivation to stay on top of the leaderboard ? Who knows ? He joked about it as his playing partner did. Beside laugh they played very solid and enjoyed the day.
Kenny Le Sager confessed he has been playing very well for a few months and that he is very closed to get a good result.
“I really improved my strategy on course. I do better deal with my mistakes and each round, I adapt my target to the swing I can produce. And obviously I am stronger in each part of the game thanks to my coaches, Maxime Van Hauwe and Mathieu Santerre. ”
Few players of morning session won against the course. As an exception to the rule, Frenchman George Leriche shot the best score of the day before lunch. He did not drop any shot and holed 6 birdies to sign for 66.
The weather during the afternoon was really better. The temperature increased enough to make players take off their pullover. More and more red figures appeared on the scoring board. Spaniard Pedro Erice took third place alone one stroke back thanks to great 67 and England’s Matthew Cryer signed for 68 and a total of -4 at fifth place. Then a group of 4 players are sixth tie : Frenchmen Tony Raillard and Clément Gallois, Italian Andrea Zanini and Spain’s Jordi Garcia del Moral.
After many expectation, the cut is finally fixed at +4 for 54 players including 6 amateurs.
