Barnes and Serres tie in Guadeloupe
England’s Jason Barnes had warned at the beginning of the tournament that his goal was the victory. He will tee off in last group tomorrow as he took the lead tie with -10 total. France’s Olivier Serres (picture) shot the score of the day 64, 7 under par to join the Englishman. Serres confessed that he felt good in Guadeloupe. (click here for image gallery)
“I am playing very good, I feel good here, people are nice. I have been working and training in Australia at A Game academy all winter and Patrick Talon, French coach, helped me for specific points. It would be my first win but right now honestly I don’t know. I can not think about it I am exhausted, it a so hot today…”
Players suffered again a lot on course. They have been playing in the heat for 5 days now and bodies got hurt.
Jason Barnes, with very British phlegm, keeps on saying that he is playing well and that the goal is still the same, a victory. At third place, Spain’s Ignacio Sanchez Palencia, only one stroke back of the lead and behind fellow Jaime Camargo and France’s Julien Gressier. Odds are very high. No less than 16 players within 5 shots. A win from behind would be the surprise for this first Open de Saint François Guadeloupe.
