Bjorn Akesson destroyed the Pléneuf-Val-André course with a card of 62 to propel himself into the lead of the Blot Open de Bretagne after 36 holes. His Swedish compatriot Per Langfors and the Dane Jeppe Kristian Andersen complete a Scandinavian podium, three shots behind the leader. Benjamin Hébert enters the top 5. Three other Tricolores are in the top 20.

While the sun is still shining on the coast of Penthièvre, the Vikings took power at the Blot Open de Bretagne by taking the podium! After 36 holes, it’s the Swede Bjorn Akesson who took the lead, signing a flawless 62, one unit away from the Bluegreen Pléneuf-Val-André Golf course record, proof that the conditions were clement on Friday. It was on his return journey that the Scandinavian made the difference with two eagles in a row! A first eagle on the small (but very tricky) par 4 of hole number 10, followed by another on the short par 5 of hole number 11. With his three birdies from 15 to 17, the 35-year-old golfer took its distances with a score of -13.

Course record for Mats Ege

His compatriot Per Langfors for his part chained birdies (9) for three bogeys. Danish Jeppe Kristian Andresen is the third viking on the podium, also at -10. The Scandinavians definitely had the wind in their sails since the Norwegian Mats Ege signed a record card of 60 (-10) with ten birdies on the clock… 19 strokes less than the day before to make the cut at the last minute!

My 4-5 meter birdie putt at 5 got my game off to a good start.

Benjamin Hébert

The first Frenchman is at the foot of the podium since Benjamin Hébert managed a nice 65 without fault to enter the top 5. The solid fellow from Brive started early… and well! “ It wasn’t flying too much this morning at 7:50 a.m. (Editor’s note: Hébert was in the opening act), he admitted. My 4-5 meter birdie putt at 5 got my game off to a good start. This morning the weather was favorable, just like yesterday afternoon. We’ll see on Saturday. But the weather has a big influence on the score here. »

Fifteen Blues this weekend

Fifteen French people will play this weekend in front of the Breton public. Robin Sciot-Siegrist (14e), Maxence Giboudot et Grégory Bourdy (18th) are in the top 20. We will also note the nice rise of Sébastien Gros with his 65. Or even the presence of four Bretons with Paul Beauvy (37th) and Jean-Briac Chatel (61st) from the Pléneuf-Val-André golf school, or even Maxime Legros (49th) and Damien Perrier (61st). Announced as the two stars this week, Martin Couvrera et Alexander Levy did not make the cut. “ My golf was not up to par, Levy regretted. I was happy to be there. I really enjoy the course. But I didn’t manage to score. » Tomorrow, the day promises to be hot with a moving day which could redistribute the cards during the day… and a giant concert in the golf course in the evening!
