French Open: “It will take two big days on Saturday and Sunday”, slips Victor Perez

Like Thursday in the first round, the French number one Victor Perez returned a card of 69 (-2). He ranks at the gates of the top 10 after two laps.

In Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines,

Victor Perez keeps pace on national golf. “Today I played better but not scored better, and yesterday I played less well but I scored the same. It balances out“If his big game was solid, the putts did not go in enough:” I think the organizers wanted it to score a little lower. So there were flags a little closer to obstacles and slopes. The flags were more complex than yesterday and the putts of five, six meters are difficult to enter. I putted pretty well anyway and I didn’t want to get frustrated“. With a total of -4 in two laps, the Tarbais are still close to the top 10, but eleven shots behind the impressive leader Rasmus Højgaard: “It will take two big days Saturday and Sunday. But to score low, you have to put more putts in the middle. Everything will depend on the conditions. It’s a course that should not be attacked, that’s for sure. There is no par 4 by car. And with all the obstacles and penalties, bogeys and doubles can happen quickly if you play with fire.»
