Richard Kilpatrick, 31 year old, leads by two strokes at Open de la Mirabelle d’Or. He scored a solid 69, 2 under par to be added to his 66 first round.

After stomy weather for the the first round, players had to fight again wind and cool temperatures today. Kilpatrick has been playing on Alps Tour for four seasons now and still seeking for maiden win.  So is France’s Pierrick Peracino who is just 2 shots behind.  Peracino signed for the score of the 66 tie with Sébastien Gros.

Unfortunatly for Gros, it was not enough to make the cut. Gros, who won 2 weeks ago in Guadeloupe, had a tough first round 80 with a never-ending hole on the 10th. His card today is flawless and reflects better his level of game.

Former European Tour player, France’s François Delamontagne ties 6th place. The Alps Tour ranking could be really mix up after this French week as leader, England’s Jason Palmer misse the cut as third fellow Andrew Cooley and fourth Brendan McCarroll.
