Lando Casanova and Brun shine on home soil

The 35-year-old Lando Casanova has been in fine form in the first two rounds, recording a complete bogey-free tournament thus far, along with his compatriot Brun who posted a blemish-free round of 68 to move into a tie for the lead.

The pair are one stroke ahead of in-form American Chase Hanna, South African Hennie Du Plessis, Welshman David Boote and Englishman Jonathan Thomson. Lando Casanova has admitted that he is thoroughly enjoying competing on home soil and hopes to take his confidence with him into the weekend.

“I played solid golf and I stuck to my strategy,” said Lando Casanova, a Challenge Tour graduate back in 2014. “I had a couple of bad holes, but I was able to save some important pars. I like the way we have to play here; I’m feeling confident on this golf course, so I feel really good now.

“I was waiting for birdie chances from the beginning of the round, but I was maybe too far from the pin, and  I had three great chances on the first, second and third holes, but I didn’t make the putts. I stayed patient on eight and nine and managed to save a par on both occasions so I’m pretty happy.

“I feel pretty confident but, here the conditions can change every day, tomorrow could be very windy. Everything can change right up until the end, so I have to take some rest this afternoon and get focused for the weekend.”

The Open de Bretagne has allowed free entry for spectators to allow golf fans the experience of watching links golf in person and fellow Frenchman Brun has said that it has been an added bonus to have crowds in Brittany.

“Yes, it’s very exciting for me,” Brun said. “The crowd was very present for me the first two days and even with the rain they followed us. We have to play, but they don’t need to be here so that was quite nice to have a little crowd.

“It’s going to be nice to play with Jérôme as he is a good friend and very good guy, and we play very well together, sowe can both build a good round together.”

The third round of the Open de Bretagne will begin at 8:30am local time on Saturday June 26, with Lando Casanova teeing it up at 12:10 alongside current co-leader Julien Brun and Englishman Jonathan Thomson.
