Daux on his own in Egyt
Franck Daux of France shot 67, -5 during opening round of Ein Bay Open in Sokhna Golf Club in Egypt. A group of three players is one shot back, England’s Ben Wheeler, Italy’s Enrico Di Nitto and Spain’s Daniel Osorio.
The weather was fair today, nice and sunny in the morning and with a little breeze in the afternoon. Ein Bay Open is the first of the 3 event winter series in Egypt and the winner will earn an invitation to play the Egyptian Challenge Tour in April.
Many players beat the course as 23 of them shot under par. Defending champion, France’s Thomas Elissalde struggled to recall the good memories he had on the course as he signed for a 77, +5 card as his younger brother Paul.
A pack of seven players is tie for fifth place with -3. Among them, England’s Tom Shadbolt and France’s Julien Foret who won the Coupe de France Pro in Morocco mid January.
The projected cut is +1.
