Quesne ended with four straight birdies, and Danny Willett of England shot a second straight 67 to sit alone in second place.

After Alpine fog delayed the start at the Crans-sur-Sierre club, poor visibility curtailed play with two groups still to finish their rounds.

Paul Lawrie of Scotland, the highest-ranked player in the field at No. 30, was a further stroke back in third. His 66 included dropped shots at two par-3s on the back nine.

Frenchman Gregory Bourdy followed his tournament-leading 63 on Thursday with a 75 to trail Quesne by five strokes.

Colin Montgomerie shot 68 to be 2-under, two strokes inside the projected cut.
