Moliets golf course
Day two will see a different style course (both links and woodland). Moliets is considered one of the top ten courses in France and was designed by the brilliant Robert Trent-Jones.
It's 6173 metres from the back so Chris & I should have a slight advantage as we're a little longer off the tee. This will be negated by the fact that there are three "blind" holes and Tim, in particular, seems to play his best golf on links courses. His game is suited to picking long irons cleanly off the tight fairway lies and we'll do well to hold them both here.
A half would be a great result for us.
Statto says: When Tim played a French links course for the first time he went four down with four to play but played brilliantly to snatch a half. I can see this course suiting them so Tim & Steve to win a tight match one up. Surprisingly, 20 matches have gone down the 18th yet only seven of them have been halved.
