It was another blisteringly hot day with just a light breeze in Paris and Da Silva took advantage of the conditions with seven birdies and a just single dropped shot to reach -12, one ahead of first round leader Greg Owen.
The Brazilian had three red numbers in his final four holes to take control of a tournament and he’ll be confident of finishing the job tomorrow on a style of course that he’s excelled on this season. His two wins have come at tree-lined venues in the Riegler and Partner Legends in Austria and the Swiss Seniors Open.
“I’m really chuffed,” said the leader. “Again today, I hit the ball really well and gave myself a lot of chances. I probably missed two fairways today and the rest was all good. That’s the key here, to hit the fairways. The course isn’t very long, but if you do miss there are a lot of trees everywhere. It’s a nice stretch of holes there at the end. You need to get at least one or two birdies, but it’s so easy to get ahead of yourself.
“I’m feeling good. I just want to keep playing the way I have been, and if someone else plays better than me tomorrow then good for them. But I’m happy and I’m going to keep focussed and stay in the present.”
Owen started on the 10th hole and built on his overnight lead with birdies at 12, 13 and 15, but a double bogey on the 16th halted his progress. He did birdie 18 for the second time and came home in one-under-par for a 68 and -11 total.
Michael Jonzon has played with Owen the first two days and he’s alone in 3rd on -10. The two-time DP World Tour winner bogeyed his first hole of the day, but he racked up eight birdies after that to stay in contention for a first Legends Tour win.
Robert Coles shot a best-of-the-day 64 to move into a tie for 4th alongside Keith Horne and Mauricio Molina at -8. MCB Road to Mauritius number one Peter Baker is 7th on -6 thanks to a bogey-free 67, and Phillip Archer is 8th on -5.
