Anders Hansen piled the pressure on the overnight leaders with an impressive round of three under par at the tough and blustery Alstom Open de France at a Le Golf National near Paris.
Hansen shot an impressive 68 today to go joint top after overnight leader Christian Nilsson of Sweden is in the middle of bad round currently standing at 3 under par but 3 over for the round.
Hansen was level with Italy’s Colombo, who made three birdies and as many bogeys in his first 13 holes.
Hansen, started his round on the tenth and parred his first five holes before making birdies at 15, 16 and 18 and a bogey at 17 was his only mistake of the front nine.
He then birdied the 4th and the 6th, the latter courtesy of a great iron approach shot from just off the left side of the fairway. Unfortunately a bogey four on the 8th ( his 17th ) hole saw him drop back alongside Colombo.
There are players still out on the course but in tough conditions like this Hansen will be very pleased with his day’s work.
