Perrino and Lee share lead at Saint-Omer Open

SAINT-OMER, France – Andrea Perrino and Craig Lee shared a one-shot lead after the second round of the Saint-Omer Open.

Lee had six birdies and three bogeys Friday for a 3-under 68 and 5-under 137 total in windy and wet conditions. His Italian rival carded a 2-under 69 with three birdies and one bogey.

Both men have a one-stroke lead over first-round leader George Coetzee of South Africa. Federico Colombo is fourth at 3 under.

Benn Barham, Thomas Norret, Andrew Tampion, Marco Ruiz and Matthew Zions are tied for fifth, three strokes off the pace.

Perrino is leading a European Tour event for the first time of his career.

“I’ve just got to stay calm and make the best out it,” he said. “I’m not going to worry about it or play with fear, it’s just a game.”

Coetzee, who led by two shots after the first round, lost his lead with a bogey at the fourth and a double bogey at the 14th.
