Ritchie gets solid start in Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge

JC Ritchie opened the Challenge Tour’s Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge at Golf PGA France du Vaudreuil in Le Vaudreuil, France on Thursday with a three-under-par 68 to sit in a share of seventh after the first round.

Ritchie made four birdies and a bogey in a solid round to be four shots off the lead held by Paul Peterson of the United States who also dropped just one shot on his way to a superb seven-under 64. That gave him a three-stroke lead over five players on four-under, while Ritchie shared seventh with four other players.

Oliver Bekker also had a good start, with his two-under 69 putting him in a share of 12th. Jayden Schaper overcame a double bogey and two bogeys to sign for a level-par 71. Hennie du Plessis also carded level-par with three bogeys and three birdies. Jacques Blaauw had a quadruple-bogey eight on the par-four 15th, but pulled it back to two-over for the round. Bryce Easton battled his way to a four-over 75, as did Jacques Kruyswijk.
