Disappointing start for Manu Gandas in France

Indian golfer Manu Gandas opened with a disappointing 4-over 75 to be placed 132nd and finds himself in a difficult position heading into the weekend of the Cazoo Open de France here.

Gandas shot in rather wet conditions with five bogeys against just one birdie on the sixth.

With the cut projected at even par, Gandas would need a very low second-round score to make the weekend rounds.

The Indian got into the DP World Tour via arrangement with the Indian Tour, where he topped the Order of Merit.

Korean sensation Tom Kim handled the torrential early morning rain to post a bogey-free seven-under-par 64 and take the lead on the opening day.
