Barnes full of confidence
England’s Jason Barnes showed amazing golf and especially great putting during first round of Masters 13 at Pont Royal.
Englishman has won his maiden trophy 2 weeks ago and said he felt less pressure on course. As proof of confidence he holed 5 birdies in a row on back nine and signed for a splendid card of 66, -6.
At second position, two fellows Ricki Neil-Jones and Sam Robinson, the most “frenchy” of English players on Alps Tour. He likes France so much that he is really thinking about living here. These two players are 2 strokes behind Barnes. They share the provisional podium with young French amateur, Thomas Grava, 16 year old and member of Pont Royal golf club.
Defending Champion, Ghislain Rosier had a tough day and shot 75. Former European Tour player Jean François Remesy, twice winner of the French Open, posted a opening 71.
The projected cut is +2.
