Local amateur, Julien de Poyen, took the lead in Saint François
A group of three players took the club house lead heading to last round of Open de Saint François Guadeloupe. Local amateur, Julien de Poyen, is one of the co-leaders alongside France’s Léo Lespinasse and Erwan Vieilledent. They are -5 total one shot clear of amateur Martin Farfal and Spain’s David Morago.
De Poyen, who had a great season with his university teal, Saint Louis, Missouri, managed to take advantage of his knowledge of the course. He shot 68, -3 thanks to 5 birdies and 2 bogeys.
Lespinasse had to face the same, especially back to back dropped shots on 5th and 6th on his back nine. But he reacted the best way with a birdie on the 8th. He signed for the best score of the day, 66 tie with France’s Alan Bihan. Lespinasse only made 2 cuts this season out of 6 events but his work on his swing with same coach? Olivier Leglise, as Europeann Tour players such as Greg Bourdy, Romain Wattel or Benjamin Hébert, seemed to be promising. The 21 year old player from Biarritz had his best result in Guadalupe last year as he was runner up. One step is yet to climb to improve his record.
Vielledent doesn’t have a full category on the Alps tour and good results could make him be in good position to enter the following events of the season. He had 6 birdies and 3 birdies for a 68 card. He recorded a sixth place in Italy a forenight ago.
The cut felt at +5 including 5 amateurs.
