Name Game: Espana Leads Open de Espana

16 May 2015, Posted by , , , 0

The most confusing thing about Friday’s European Tour results is that the guy named Espana leading the Open de Espana isn’t even from Espana.

No, Edouard Espana is a native of France, but that bit of confusion doesn’t really matter after he fired a 3-under 69 to jump up six spots to the top of the leaderboard, sitting at 7-under.

For the second straight day, Espana had just one bogey, and his back-to-back birdies on 14 and 15 put him into the lead.

His closest competitor is Ricardo Gonzalez of Argentina, who fired his second straight 69 to reach 6-under.

Nowhere on the leader board could one find Day 1 leader Trevor Fisher Jr., who followed up his Day 1 65 with an ugly 78 on Friday.
