Perrier and Gallegos neck and neck
Damien Perrier from France and Javier Gallegos shot best score 66, -6, in Maria Lankowitz GC in Austria to lead by one stroke the Gösser Open.
Perrier, 25 years old, used not to be an Austrian fan. During the first seasons of his career he had said that Austria did not like him as he always played very badly there. It seemed that the Frenchman managed to break the curse. He holed seven birdies and one eagle which really look like a beginning of a love story with Austria.
Spain’s Javier Gallegos, 22 years old, played this Friday, his first round on Alps Tour schedule. He recorded seven birdies and only one dropped shot on the 4th to join Perrier on top. Multiple Alps Tour winner, England’s Andrew Cooley and Italy’s Aron Zemmer are one shot back. Austria’s Leo Astl signed for -4 and is 5th tie with a group of 5 other players.
Former Gösser Open champions are in position to challenge the top of the leaderboard. Austria’s Martin Wiegele shot 68, Spain’s Juan Antonio Bragulat and Ireland’s Brendan McCarrol scored 70.
