French duo seek home win at Open de Bretagne

Lando Casanova has not dropped a single shot all week as he aims for victory on home soil, while his countryman and playing partner Brun matched his four under par score on Saturday with a round that included six birdies and two bogeys in  wet and windy conditions at Golf Bluegreen Pléneuf Val André.

Austrian Niklas Regner and in-form American Chase Hanna are the closest challengers to the home favourites at eight under par.

Lando Casanova has admitted that it took patience to battle through the  weather conditions today,  but was helped by playing alongside his fellow Frenchman.

“I have to be happy with this position and the way I’ve played so far,” he said. “Today was a bit more difficult, because I wasn’t feeling too good from the tee, so I had to fight a lot with the rough, with the rain, with the wind. I am happy with my score and performance, but I have to be better off the tee tomorrow.

“I am very happy with the score and my attitude today as I stayed patient and I stayed focused to keep fighting the end, so I am really happy with that.

“To be in a position to win a tournament in France, it’s great and we’re friends so this is more than great. I hope there will be less rain tomorrow so the people that came to see us can enjoy it a bit more. So, let’s have a good run and let’s have fun!”

Brun agreed that it was an added bonus to be playing alongside a friend as they pushed each other on every hole.

“I was very good today,” Brun said. “It’s never easy to be in the lead when you start the round, and this is a key round of the tournament.I am very pleased to shoot 66 today and be in a good position for tomorrow.

“Hopefully we finish it off, it was a lot of fun out there.Jérôme played very solid from the beginning to the end, no bogeys today again so we fed off each other.

“Hopefully tomorrow we can finish it off and be at the end together and battle for the title, that would be very nice.”
The final round of Open de Bretagne will get under way at 8:10am local time, with Lando Casanova and Brun being joined by Austrian Niklas Regner in the final group at 11:35.
