Four way ties in France
There are four players on top of the Open International du Haut-Poitou after 2 rounds, France’s Clément Gallois and Damien Perrier, Dutch Darius Van Driel and Spain’s Pep Angles (picture). The lead score is -7.
The weather conditions were perfect today and the best score even posted on St Cyr golf course was signed by France’s Clément Gallois. He recorded 65, -8 and did not dropped any shots.
“I am not playing anymore. I teach in Gold de Touraine and I had an invitation to play here. This is my best score ever as pro. I struggled a little on front nine then from the 11th I hit very close to the pins and I started to hole many putts. I had pressure because I wanted to do well but obviously I was way more relax than when I was playing for living.”
The overnight leader Damien Perrier, confirmed his good form and signed for 70 , -3.
“It was a bit different than yesterday but still, all in all, I am happy with my game. I did well on pars 5 and I keep on feeling confident about my level of game.”
Pep Angles, 22, third co-leader just turned pro. He got graduated from University of Central Arkansas in May and he is playing his first event as pro in Poitiers this week. As a kid, he was competing in motocross but after injuries he decided to start a new sport, with success.
Last but not least, Darius Van Driel will be once again in the last group on Sunday. He finished second last week in Preisch and he has been in contention many times this season. All the Alps Tour players confirm that his turn has come, same as Perrier by the way.
“Yes I really would like to finally keep my hands on a trophy. My wedging was very good and I made birdie on all the pars 5 but I only hit one in two. I think the experience of last week will help me tomorrow. I am excited and I am really looking forward to play the last round.”
The cut felt at +4 with 45 players including one amateur.
