Anders HANSEN -5

Anders Hansen converted seven birdies against two bogeys on his way to an excellent first round 66, to lead by one over a toughened up Le Golf National. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 42 year old Danish golfer hit 12/14 fairways and 14/18 Greens in Regulation, plus he took just 26 putts in total. The three time European Tour winner has secured one top three finish so far this year and he may be eyeing up another big finish here.

Romain WATTEL -4

Romain Wattel converted six birdies against two bogeys on his way to a first round 67, to break out of the pack of 3 unders. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 22 year old French talent hit 10/14 fairways and 13/18 Greens in Regulation, plus he also took just 26 putts (the same as Hansen). Romain has already achieved two top four finishes this year and this being his national open, he will gain lots of home support if he continues to contend through the week.
