Michael Campbell has made the cut at the French Open by one shot.

The former US Open champ carded a three over par 74 at Le National Golf Club in round two to finish on a three over total and make the weekend for only the third time this year.

Campbell made two birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey in his 74 which has him nine shots back from German Marcel Siem (68) on a six under par total.

The Kiwi, who was awarded honorary life membership to the European Tour following his US Open win, has previously finished tied for third at the French Open in 2006.

The 21-year-old Korean born Kiwi, who was disqualified last week for the second time this season for signing an incorrect scorecard, shot a one over par 71 to finish in a share of 107th place and miss the cut by four shots.
