Frenchman Beaucousin's 65 gives him two-stroke lead in Alps Tour's Gosser Open
Round 1 of the Alps Tour's Gösser Open saw Teremoana Beaucousin from France take the lead of the tournament with a seven-under-par 65, two shots ahead of a group of five players, at Golf Club Erzherzog Johann in Maria Lankowitz, Austria. 
« I started with two birdies, then I made par up to hole 7 where I made another birdie. I also made a birdie on 12 and an eagle on 13 to finish with a final birdie on 16 » Beaucousin explained.« I feel good, I’ve been playing better in the last couple of months, I got some good practice in Morocco this winter and I’m ready » he added.
The 143 rising golf stars enrolled in the tournament faced difficult weather conditions with rain showers throughout  the day.
«  It was very rainy » Beaucousin said. «  The pins were not that easy and there was a lot of spin on the ball so it was kind of hard to keep the ball near the hole » he added.
Beaucousin, 23, is from Tahiti, French Polynesia. He arrived in mainland France eight months ago after spending four years on a scholarship, studying and playing golf at Kennesaw State University near Atlanta, Georgia. The Gösser Open is his second tournament of the Alps Tour.
This year marks the 26th edition of the Gösser Open, the oldest tournament on the Alps Tour circuit.
