Romain Langasque is back on German soil. While he failed to make the cut two weeks ago, during his last appearance on the European circuit, at the KLM Open, the Frenchman is alone in second place (-11 total) after 36 holes played this week. Already in the top 10 at the end of the first round, the 29-year-old confirmed this on Friday thanks to his superb card of 65.

Brilliant throughout the day (four birdies on the way there and back, one bogey), the winner of the ISPS Handa Wales Open in 2020, particularly distinguished himself on the greens, sinking several long putts (6 meters on the 2nd; 10 meters on the 8th; 6.5 meters on the 12th): ” It was a very good day, I putted very well, and today (Friday) I drove better than yesterday so of course I had a few more opportunities. Very happy to have managed to string together a second big day, it’s a course that I like, it’s a course where I feel good and half the job is done. »

Ferguson in control

Romain Langasque remains on the lookout, two lengths behind the new leader, Ewen Ferguson (-13 total). Although he was recently sidelined for some time due to dizziness, the Scot appears to be back in full possession of his means, as illustrated by his magnificent score of 64 signed at the end of this second round. After accumulating four birdies on his first six holes, the double winner on the DP World Tour went into the water on the 16th and conceded a double bogey. An error largely compensated by an eagle gleaned on the 18th and by four other birdies validated subsequently.

« It was quite difficult to fight the vertigo. There are days when you feel completely normal and think you can play again, like I tried to do in Hamburg. (European Open), then the dizziness came back and I said to myself ”Oh no”. For my return to the KLM Open, I loved it, to be honest. Last week in Italy was nice. The weather is great here, I love Munich, and I feel like I’m enjoying the sport even more. ».

Warrior also impresses

The third step of the podium (-8 total), is occupied by five players. This group is composed of Matthew Southgate, Bernd Wiesberger, Patrick Reed, Jordan Smith and David Micheluzzi. Leading Thursday evening, the Australian had a bad start to his second round (a bogey, a double bogey after five holes) before reversing the trend (six birdies, a bogey), to finish the course in 70 strokes.

The top 10 is completed by ten golfers who share 8th position (-7 total). This includes Julien Guerrier. The Frenchman also recorded a score of 64, the best of the day, and gained 100 places in the ranking. The native of Evreux started off with a bang (five birdies on the way out) then showed solid form on the way back (one eagle, one birdie). Among the other French representatives involved, Jeong Weon Ko is ranked 24th (-5), Frédéric Lacroix is ​​33rd (-4) while Ugo Coussaud is ranked 48th (-3) and just makes the cut.

Conversely, Tom Vaillant (66th, -2), David Ravetto (91st, by total) and Adrien Saddier (142nd, +5), will not be at the start of the moving day. Similarly, Bernhard Langer, who was playing his last tournament on the European circuit, stops there (91st).
