No joy for Kiwi pair in Paris

6:59 am on 4 July 2009

Par has again been beyond the Wellington golfers Michael Campbell and Mark Brown on the European tour.

Campbell's had a 4-over 75 and Brown a 79 on the opening day of the French Open in Paris.

The leader by three shots is the brilliant young German Martin Kaymer who scorched round the Golf National course in 62.

Ireland's Padraig Harrington who's been struggling as he prepares to defend his British Open title later this month had a 72.
