“Waking up was pretty rough but I played very solid golf in windy conditions and I’m very happy with my game, he said. It’s a very nice course, it needs the wind because without wind in good conditions it would be… I wouldn’t say easy, but a little easier. But with the wind, it’s really nice to play, it’s really fun, there are nice tee-shots to hit, nice second shots. I think my putting was very solid. The last few weeks he hasn’t been very good, so I’m really happy with my putting this morning. »
He shares the first position with the Norwegian Kristian Krogh Johannessen. Author of a bogey-free run with 5 birdies, the 28-year-old said: “I got off to a fast start and that’s very important, especially when I started the last nine holes. It was expected to be very windy, but it didn’t come until I was at hole 10 or 11 and then it really started blowing hard. »
“You have to be patient and keep the ball in play, and that’s what I tried to do today”
“You have to be patient and keep the ball in play, and that’s what I tried to do today, developed the Norwegian. At any golf course, it’s an advantage not to bogey and I’m very happy with the course I did today in these conditions. »
