FRENCH OPEN 2004


The ultimate prize eluded the six Irish raiders participating in the French International Open at the Club de La Grande Motte, near Montpelier on the south coast but there were some solid performances from the Irish representatives.  Victory went to the young Frenchman Adrien Lacore, who is 19 and hails from Touren in the Loire Valley.  Lecore carded a fabulous 8 under par 46 in Saturday's rainy conditions to take a four shot halfway lead.  He shot 56 in Sunday's second round and ended up tied with fellow French player Sebastien Clement, who fired a Sunday 50 for a matching 102 total.  Lacore won the play-off at the second extra hole.
Strangely, the Irish failed to prosper on a sunny, if windy, second day.  Alan Hanlon was the best of the Irish (and also leading foreign player) - the Westmeath star from Collinstown shooting a 54 on Sunday to finish on three under overall for the tournament.and joint fifth.  Ian Farrelly from Duleek in Co. Meath was just a single shot behind on 106.  Farrelly also shot 54 on Sunday.  Karl Maxwell (Old County) shot a 57 in the final round so he fell back from a promising joint second after 18 to finish joint eleventh.  Anto Gray of Glenville finished joint 14th on 109 (54+55).  Gray's fellow Dubliner Paul O'Gorman returned a 114 aggregate while another Old County man Billy Kane finished on 121, just inside the Top 50.
Alan Hanlon, Ian Farrelly and Karl Maxwell had the consolation of forming the Ireland team that took second place behind a rampant France.  Hanlon and Farrelly now move on to the International Open at Teia, near Barcelona this week, where they will be joined by a host of Ireland's top players, including reigning Irish Strokeplay champion William Buckley Junior and former national champions Sean Downes, Derek Courtney, Andy Dempsey, David Hayden and John Walsh.  However, with seven Frenchmen and an English player (Steve Deeble) in the top ten at Montpelier, there are signs that Ireland's international Pitch and Putt domination is under threat.
