Ballyliffin’s Brendan McCarroll and Birr’s Stephen Grant are just a shot off the lead in the Open de Saint Francois - Region Guadeloupe on the Alps Tour.
The pair opened with three under 68s to share fifth place behind French pair Matthieu Bey and Sebastien Gors and Italy’s Alessio Bruschi at Golf International de Saint-Francois Guadeloupe
McCarroll had four birdies and one bogey in his round while Grant, who won pro-am (pictured) had five birdies and two bogeys.
Joking before the start, Grant tweeted: “Myself and my team won pro am I hope it’s not a jinx for the main tournament like Masters Par 3 lol”
So far so good.
