St. Malo (France), July 5, 2019 – Under another cloudless sky at the Saint Malo Mixed Open and with the Brittany sun beating down, Manon de Roey played a fantastic round today carding a -8 (64) for the day to give her a 3-shot lead at 13 under par for 36 holes.
With a total of 8 birdies on her card including all four of the par fives, Manon de Roey explains:
“The conditions were perfect. There was not much wind this morning and it was still a little bit wet, but it was perfect. Today was very steady and I didn’t make any bogeys. I took advantage of the par fives again and birdied them all. I made a couple of long putts as well”.
Heading into the weekend, when asked what she hopes for over the next rounds and a potential win, Manon de Roey:
“The last two days were solid, so I just have to continue what I’m doing. It would mean a lot to win a tournament in general and this one is special because it is with the guys. There are two more days to go”.
At -10, second place is shared between the French players Frédéric Lacroixone of yesterday’s joint leaders and Maxime Radureau who moves up one slot from third place the previous day.
Having birdied 6 of the holes today and despite bogeys on the par 3 fourth and the par 5 fifteenth giving Frédéric Lacroix a -4 (68) for the day, he remained optimistic:
“I felt pretty good about today and just had a couple of bogeys on the card. Conditions were maybe a little bit harder because of the wind and the course drying out a bit. I will try to win, obviously, but I don’t know how it’s going to go. It doesn’t matter if it’s a guy or a girl in front: I will try to catch her, or him and I will do my best to do that.”
Maxime Radureau also came off the course satisfied:
“I’m very happy. I’m second for the time being. That’s cool. I’ll have to go into the weekend pretty hard.”
Having started with 3 birdies on the first three holes for a total of 5 birdies and an eagle on his card, he put the two bogeys down to an error of judgement in his wedge shots.
In third place at -9 sits a group of four players. The French player Teremoana Beaucousin who carded a 67 (-5) whilst James Sharp of England, Rafa Echenique of Argentina and Pierre Pineau of France all carded 66 (-6).
Yesterday’s joint leader Clemens Gaster from Austria is at -8 alongside his compatriot Timon Baltl, Frenchman Julien Foret, Irishman Jonathan Yates and Belgian player Kevin Hesbois.
There are another 4 LETAS players in the top 20 on the leader board all sitting at –5 for the two rounds; Rachael Goodall and Cloe Frankish from England, Laura Murray from Scotland and Emilie Piquot from France.
The cut was made at -2 leaving a total of 51 players for the final rounds with 49 professional players and 2 amateurs. The breakdown between men and women is 36 Alps Tour professionals and 1 amateur and 13 LETAS professionals and 1 amateur.
Tee-off starts at 9:26 tomorrow morning with parties of mixed three balls.
