Recital by Guido Migliozzi (62) to win the French Open

Date:

The Italian Guido Migliozziwith a great last lap with 62 hits (-9), and a total of 268 (-16), surprised locals and strangers and won the open frenchof the DP World Tour (formerly the European Circuit), held in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines.

It was the sixth tournament won as a professional by the man born in Vicenza 25 years ago, his third title on a European circuit where he had not won in three years and three months, when he won in Belgium.

He did it this Sunday in France in brilliant and surprising fashion, as he started with a five-shot disadvantage to a Dane. Rasmus Hojgarard who entered the final round as the leader, with the advantage of one impact against South African George Coetzee and two with the Belgian Thomas Pieters and the Frenchman Paul Barjon.

But it was, with the careful return of Hojgaard, who delivered a card with 68 hits (-3), Migliozzi was very good. His nine ‘birdies’, without any disappointment, and despite settling for par in the first five holes, led him to a victory that few believed.

He managed, at least, to force the tiebreaker Hojgaard, because with Migliozzi in the waiting club house, the Dane still has two holes to face and a shot behind. But he had to settle for par on both holes, giving the Italian victory.

Left behind were Coetzee, Pieters and Barjon, who delivered cards of 71, 70 and 70 strokes.

The best Spanish ever Adrian Otaeguithirteenth, with 279 (-5, after 72 (+1) this Sunday.
