26th May 2011 | Alps Tour Golf
Open de Saint-François – 1st Round
Players suffered a lot of hot temperatures today (approx. 32°C) and not enough wind to cool bodies and heads… Frenchman Mathieu Bey takes the lead with a scorecard of 66 5-under par, followed by four players one shot behind. Mattheu Bey did the perfect round avoiding dropping any shot. See Images Gallery He holed three birdies and one eagle to start the best way. England’s Jason Barnes, winner this year in Slovenia is in the group of players one stroke behind. He shares this second position with fellow Will Roebuck, 2011 Alps Tour new member, France’s Thomas Fournier and Spain’s Ignacio Sanchez Palencia.
Trent Jones Sr. course is unanimously appreciated for its design and preparation for the tournament after a long renovation last two years. Saint-Francois re-becomes a fantastic golf destination in West Indies.
Young 19 year old amateur, Florent Ales, member at Saint-François Golf Club and with playing handicap of +1.2, shot a solid 69 -2-under-par to be 10th tie.
