Well positioned in the top 20 of the standings at midday, the Franco-American Martin Trainer suffered at the end of the game but he still managed to make his third cut of the season.
On the course from Grand Reserve to Rio Grande in Puerto Rico , it is forbidden to relax your attention. The native of Marseille, Martin Trainer , almost paid the price on Friday.
After having recorded 3 birdies in 11 holes, the one who now flies the French flag has experienced some setbacks on his last 4 holes.
At 15, the last par 5 of the course and the easiest 3rd hole, he first conceded an annoying double bogey before making a mistake again at 17.
His card of 72 pushes him back to 54th place, 12 shots behind the imperturbable leader, Carson Young. The 28-year-old American and 453rd player in the world has a 4-stroke lead over his first pursuers at the dawn of the weekend.
