with Australia’s Richard Green, after the first round of the French Open. Behind those two atop the leader-board was George Coetzee of South Africa, James Morrison of England and Thorbjorn Olesen of Denmark, who all finished their day tied at 5-under after shooting a 66.

Defending champion Miguel Angel Jimenez and Martin Kaymer remain in contention as they both sit at 71. American Bubba Watson (74), 2008 winner Pablo Larrazabal of Spain (74), and last year’s runner-up Francesco Molinari of Italy (75) will need lower scores on Friday in order to make the cut. Meanwhile; four players were already disqualified from the French Open due to a rules violation after hitting into the water on the last hole. Rikard Karlberg of Sweden, Damien McGrane of Ireland, James Ruebotham of England and Jaco Van Zyl of South Africa all dropped their balls from the wrong place and according to the rules only if the ball went beyond a certain point were players allowed to use the drop zone.
