PARIS (AP) – Home favorite Victor Dubuisson was in a three-way tie for the lead after the second round of the Alstom French Open on Friday, while Ryder Cup teammate Graeme McDowell's bid for a third successive title came to an early end.
Dubuisson and Spain's Rafa Cabrera-Bello had been part of a four-way tie for the lead after the weather-delayed opening round was completed in the morning, and they both carded a 1-under 70 in the second to finish the day level with Martin Kaymer (69). They had a 4-under 138 total.
Kaymer made four birdies to go with a double bogey on the 15th.
McDowell missed the cut on 8 over after a round of 78 that contained two double bogeys, three bogeys and no birdies. It was his worst score in 32 rounds at Le Golf National, which will host the 2018 Ryder Cup.
