Antoine Rozner wins the championship
Antoine Rozner started the day with four shots behind captain Andy Sullivan but shot him in the back nine times after he shot seven shots in eight holes from the fifth hole in the fire. The Frenchman fired a shot on the 15th day to give Sullivan an advantage again, but he picked up two more shots in closing three holes, approaching 25 underground and finishing two shots against Francesco Laporta, Mike Lorenzo Vera, Matt Wallace, and Sullivan.
Antoine Rozner’s speech
Rozner said that he has come close twice this season in Mauritius and in Valderrama and he couldn’t finish it so he is thrilled that he did it now the way he played this week 64 In the last round is always an excellent result, so getting it done this way is a great deal a big deal for him.
He said that he had no idea what was going on anywhere else in the tournament, and he knew Mike was playing well because he saw him flash on the leaderboard but he literally found out he was driving when he got to 18th. He thinks that helped him given that, and he wants to know what was going on, so he said to the box, “He doesn’t want to know, he just wants to keep pushing and be aggressive.”
Andy Sullivan had driven since day one after scoring his impressive track 61, but after he got caught, he struggled to get ahead again as he failed to catch an oncoming shot at nine. The Englishman needed an eagle on the closed hatch to force the playoff game but could only muster him when he finished the match at under 23.
Sullivan’s partner Wallace ended up playing alongside him after spreading Five Birds in his last seven holes. The four-time European Tour winner had started the day with just two barrels out of speed and snapped a shot into his opening hole, but the double ghost in the third notch brought him back and after not catching another shot in nine holes, he had to settle for second in the season.
Lorenzo Vera and La Porta joined the English duo in second place after combing rounds of 65 and 66, respectively. Both men committed a ghost in 14th, thwarting any proper opportunity to secure the inaugural tournament.
