Marcus Kinhult, Sweden, takes over at the top of the French Open leaderboard after 36 holes at Le Golf National in Paris, France.
Marcus shot a second round -6 under par 65 to lead the HNA Open de France at the half-way stage with a -6 under total, and takes a two-stroke advantage into the week-end;
“It feels good, it feels really good, I got off to a great start and played well from there.”
“The wind picked up a little bit on the back nine, the last four or five holes or so, but happy overall.”
“Saturday is going to be a big day and hopefully Sunday as well.”
“It’s a position I have never been in before so we’ll see.”
Chris Wood of England is in second place at -4 under, he shot -3 under 68 today;
“You’re going to have to grind over the week.”
“It’s a great test.”
“I’ve always loved the golf course but never really been able to produce a score. So it’s nice to put a score in today.”
Sharing third place are Jon Rahm, Spain, and yesterdays first round leader Bradley Dredge of Wales, who sadly carded +1 over par 72 in his second round, both players are at -3 under for the tournament.
Jon was in the top ten last year, and thinks it is impossible to go bogey free here;
“I did finish top ten last year and I’m playing good so far.”
“I do enjoy this type of golf and the reason why is because everybody has got to hit good shots.”
“It’s golf, you’re going to make bogeys, I think it’s virtually impossible to go bogey-free here.”
“If you can go nine holes without making a bogey, you’re playing really good golf.”
