Stefano Pitoni set the target in Brittany
Italy’s Stefano Pitoni signed for the score of the day, 65, -7 to stand one shot clear of fellow countryman Nunzio Lombardi after first round of Saint Malo Golf Open. Another Italian player is among the group of four tie for third place with -4, Luca D’Andreamatteo, Raphaël Marguery, Julien Rodallec and Jean-Pierre Verselin.
This is the inaugural Saint Malo Golf Open and the sun was generous with the players. Pitoni, who won 3 weeks ago in Italy, managed to tame the course thanks to good conditions and solid game. He recorded 7 birdies, one eagle on the 18th and dropped only 2 shots during his round. On his toes, Lombardi had 5 birdies, one eagle, 18th and one bogey.
Former European Tour big hitter, Britanny’s François Delamontagne had an invitation to play as he wished to feel the spirit of the competition again. He shot one under par.
