Swiss Open Day 2, Still No Surprises

Day 2 of the Swiss Open in Gstaad brought also no surprises. In each of the four groups the favorites had mostly easy jobs to make it through the winners’ round to get a place in the final 32.

Feijen from the Netherlands and Majid of the United Kingdom, who arrived one day later in Gstaad as he missed his train to bring him to the venue, dominated the fifth group as Switzerland’s Ronald Regli didn’t disappoint his local fans in Group 6.
