France’s Grégory Havret posted a second consecutive 3-under 70 and now holds the lead outright at the Trophée Hassan II after 36 holes. The 40-year-old Frenchman had quite a colorful scorecard, dropping an eagle and four birdies against three bogeys – two of those bogeys coming on the final two holes.
Lucas Bjerregaard, of Denmark, shot a 2-under-par 71, and is tied for second at 5-under with Trevor Fisher Jr, of South Africa. Rounding out the top-five, at 4-under-par, is James Morrison, Paul Dunne and Grégory Bourdy, who are all tied for fourth.
Gary Stal, who along with Havret, Bjerregaard, and Morrison, co-led after 18 holes, shot a 2-over 75 and dropped to 1-under, T20.

“It’s always a bit of a shame to finish like this – bogey, bogey. It’s obviously not the best but the rest was pretty good. This course is tough so you can’t avoid mistakes all day long. So far, so good. I’m quite happy with the way it’s been. I know more than anybody probably that the road is still long. But I’m obviously very happy, I’m playing well, I love this course, I love this place and I’m loving this country. And I feel good.”
