Rookie Lacroix pulling ahead in Egypt
It is his first tournament as a professional, and he’s leading by one shot after the second round of the Ein Bay Open on Sokhna Golf Club, in Egypt, but Frederic Lacroix, 23, is still not completely satisfied with his game: after returning his card (a 67, which follows yesterday’s 66) late in the afternoon, he heads to the practice ground to refine some details.
With a total of minus 11, Lacroix is followed very closely by his French colleague Teremoana Beaucousin (66-68), 24, who was co-leader after the first round; in third place stands a duo of Italian players, Lorenzo Scalise, 23 – also a rookie among pros, like Lacroix – and Alessandro Grammatica, 29, author of the best round of the day, 65 (-7) – same score posted by Swiss Mathias Eggenberger, 27.
« I would like to work a little bit on my wedges and irons, just to keep in touch with the good sensations and be ready for tomorrow », said Lacroix, who represents the Racing Club La Boulie of Versailles, in France. « Today my game was not as smooth as yesterday, I’ve started with a birdie at 10th, but then I had some tough moments and a stupid bogey on 14th. I had a good reaction though, with three birdies in a row on holes 17, 18 and 1, and two more birdies on the two par 5s, holes 3 and 7. Tomorrow I need to do the same thing and try to go low, if I want to win; all the other competitors behind me have the same goal as me! ».
The cut fell at 141 (-3), leaving 44 players in the field to share the 40.000 euros prize money (5.800 euros for the winner).
