Trio to lead in France, Grava, Tisserand and Grammatica
A group of 3 players share the lead of Open International de la Mirabelle d’Or with -4. France’s Thomas Grava (pict), amateur Hubert Tisserand and Italy’s Alessandro Grammatica.
Summer finally arrived in Europe but in a brutal way. Last week was sad and wet in Metz, about 17° C and today, the temperature was more than 30°C in the shade. Players suffered a lot from the heat.
Grava, 22, declared his 6 month work with mental coach is helping him a lot.
« I managed to play shot by shot. I understand way better the way I feel and what to do if stress comes. My putting was efficient. I took clear decisions and results are there. I only made one mistake today on the 16th, a par 3. But all in all, it was a nice round. »
Tisserand is a student of University of South Carolina, and had a solid 2015-2016 season. His stats on pars4 are really impressive, -6.
Grammatica, whose best result is a runner up place in 2012 in Italy, had six birdies and 2 bogeys to signed for -4.
A pack of 4 players is one shot behind, Nelson Da Silva, Uli Weinhandl, Fabien Marty and Lucas Vacarisas.
