Tarrio and Beaucousin remain co-leaders
Santiago Tarrio (ESP) and Teremoana Beaucousin (FRA) remain co-leaders of the Open International de la Mirabelle d’Or at Golf de La Grange aux Ormes, before tomorrow’s final round with a total score of -10.
They’re followed by James Sharp (ENG) who is 2 strokes behind at -8 total. Thomas Grava (FRA) is in 4th place at -7 total while Leonardo Sbarigia (ITA) and amateur Felix Mory (FRA) are tied for 5th place at -6 total. Mory turned in the best card of the day at 65 (-6).
« I played pretty good, I was 2 under until hole 12. Then, I bogeyed hole 13 and 18 to finish but I’m pretty happy with a level par today » Beaucousin said. « The greens were very firm and it was very windy so it was hard to get the ball close to the hole. I did not make many birdies today but I think it was the same for everybody » he continued. « Tomorrow, I’m going to try to do my best, stick to the plan and do the same thing as I’ve been doing in the last 3 days » Beaucousin concluded.
« I think it was a difficult day for everyone because the course was very hard, the greens were very hard, and it was difficult to get the ball close to the pin » Tarrio said. « Personally, I had a day similar to yesterday. I started playing well the first 9 holes and then the last 9 holes, my swing was no longer that fluid. I think doing level par today is good, we’re still at the top of the leaderboard and tomorrow is another day » he continued.
« I played well, my putting was very good, I made a few putts between 2,5 meters and 5 meters » 23-year-old French amateur Felix Mory said. « It was a rather easy day for me except on hole 18 where I made bogey. That’s too bad. Tomorrow, I’ll play relaxed, I’ll let the birdies come in, I’ll try to make pars and we’ll see what happens » Mory said. Mory obtained an invitation to play the Open de la Mirabelle d’Or, his first Alps Tour tournament. He will play the European Amateur Championship next week in The Netherlands.
Weather conditions were sunny most of the day with some clouds and temperatures in the 20s.
Final round will tee off tomorrow at 7h local time.
