Broadhurst astonishes. Remésy dives

Broadhurst astonishes. Remésy dives

By Philippe Hermann, 04 February 2023

This dry terrain is still covered with an annoying dew in the early morning. The Chief Referee allows the ball to be lifted. The rule is valid for the 120 players who started from No 1 or No 9 with its barely different micro-climate, just to say… And those of the 2nd tranche after 9:45 can also lift and replace the ball while their field is clean.

This is enough to feed a discussion that is not very useful, especially since the whole field experienced these conditions in the 1st or 2nd round with the tees and starting beaches exchanged. That said, at midday, a nod to the “leaderboard” indicated that, of the first thirteen, ten had started from No 9…

Among them, Paul Broadhurst is always “at donf”, even in friendship. 57 years old, member of the American Champions Tour, twenty victories on his European Tour table. After an opening in 66, tied with Jeff Remésy, he lifts his foot on a -3 quality giving him the lead of the Pro ranking at -9. Other fighters, Phil Archer (KLM Open 2009) and Raymond Russell, young fifty-year-old Scottish of the Legends Tour this time. He also signed an excellent 66 for -8 and the podium completed at -7 by Simon Brown and his 70, young British fifty years old since last April, living in Germany. A touch of fantasy was added with the arrival of the -7, via 66, of the Brazilian Adilson da Silva who closely frequented the Asian tour as the South African Sunshine Tour.

On the French side, cocorico for a good Thomas Levet and his 68 made two bogeys and six birdies including five on the return. On the podium at -7, it is he who will first be in the British sights, especially since the Oomer/Levet team leads the One Green Way Pro-Am. Buddies are stuffing golden bubbles for all intents and purposes.

As for Remésy, he experienced an incident suffered even by the best like Jon Rahm at Torrey Pines last weekend. Here, the two-time winner of the France Open played almost ten moves more than in the 1st round. Marc Farry is 50th, ahead of Jacquelin and Havret at +9 who, remaining at this final rank, would receive a thousand euros, as a gift voucher to finance their first steps in a season different from the previous ones, without putting on tournament after tournament, on the road to the Legends Tour, or even the American Champions Tour from 2024.
