Kamte, Sullivan share opening-day lead in France
VERSAILLES, France -- South African qualifier James Kamte and Welshman Kyron Sullivan each shot 6-under par 65s to share the opening-day lead Thursday at the French Open.
The 44-year-old Scottish player is confident he's getting his game together after four consecutive missed cuts in the majors and an 82 at the U.S. Open.
"My swing is back, just like in the '90s," Montgomerie said.
Kamte eagled the third hole and added five birdies.
"If I ever win one of these big events, I will thank Ernie [Els] right there on the spot," the 25-year-old Kamte said. "He gave me the opportunities to play back home through his foundation when no one else would give me the opportunities. If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't be sitting here today."
