They’re followed by a group of 3 players who are 2 strokes behind: Louis Cohen Boyer (FRA), James Sharp (ENG) and Tom Shadbolt (ENG). 
 
«  My day went pretty good. I was 2 under par through the fifth hole and I birdied 3 in a row to finish the front 9 » Lars Keunen said. «  Then, I gave myself a lot of chances but did not convert too many of them. But I finished pretty well with an eagle on hole 8 » he explained. « It’s a nice start but there are 36 more holes to go » he concluded. 
 
«  Today was really good, my game was really solid, my putt was also very good, I made a few great putts starting from the 1st hole » 21-year-old Guido Migliozzi said. «  To start 8 under is a very good score for the rest of the week. Tomorrow, I’ll tackle the course again and play like today with an attack strategy » he continued. 
 
Both Keunen and Migliozzi made an eagle, 7 birdies and a bogey.
Weather conditions were sunny all day with temperatures in the 30s. 
 
Round 2 will tee off tomorrow at 7h30.
