There are two players tied at the top of the Open de France leaderboard, Adrian Otaegui,from Spain, and Peter Uihlein, USA share the honor as second round play is finally completed after a weather delay at Le Golf National, in Paris.
Adrian, -5 under 66 today and Peter -4 under 67, are tied at the top of the Open de France leaderboard with -8 under par totals.
Highlight of Adrian’s round was a 40 ft putt,on the 16th;
“I made a bogey on the second and missed a five iron just on the right and couldn’t make the up-and-down, and after that I played great from the tee and made good swings with the driver and the three wood.”
“Made a birdie on six with a good second shot and chipped in on nine. That helped as well. Then played really well on the second nine. Had a lot of fairways and a lot of greens and then I was lucky as well to hole two long putts, so happy with the round.”
“Just play well again tomorrow. Obviously very good players here playing. Just have to focus on my game and that’s all.”
Peter also had a good day with the putter;
“It was a good day, I hit it pretty good. Made some nice putts I guess. I was pretty steady, really, so it was all right.”
“When the rain came and they said we could go back out, I figured the greens would be a lot better and the wind died after the storm.”
“I figured it actually wasn’t the worst time to actually have a little breather.”
Tommy Fleetwood, England, -3 under 68 today, and Alexander Björk, Sweden,-2 under 69 are tied in third place, one shot back at -7 under par.
Two Englishmen, Paul Waring, +1 over 72 and Nathan Kimsey, -1 under 70 are in fifth position.
