French amateur Grégoire Schoeb took the lead after opening 65 at Citadelle Trophy International-Golf de Preisch. The 23 year old from Metz, east of France, confirmed among the pros his good season as amateur. After wirst injury last winter, he had to stop playing for a while. One of his best result this year is a win at La Mouchy, prestigious tournament in Fontainebleau (France), end of April.
The Pole France member had eight birdies today and dropped only one shot on the 10th hole. The first pro, one shot back, is Léo Lespinasse.
