Representing Irish owned Golf Clement Ader in Paris, O'Driscoll posted a level par 72 around El Kantaoui Golf Club's Composite Course to share 34th place.

Wallace's 67 gives him a one shot lead over Amaury Rosaye of France and England's Andrew Jones with David Carey the next best of the Irish in a share of 56th after a 74.

O'Driscoll's brothers are also in action with amateurs Eamonn (78) tied 98th and Dylan (84) 120th.
