French Duo won the Q school in La Cala
A duo from France won the Alps Tour Q School. Antoine Rozner, rookie and former Challenge Tour player Baptiste Chapellan finished -7 total after last round in La Cala. Fellow countryman Jean-Baptiste Gonnet, former player on the European Tour (7 full seasons), completed the podium one shot further.
It was a tough windy and wet day. Huge amount of water felt during the night and the course was really at its limit. The area of Malaga had suffered last week with heavy rain and the fairways were very wet and obviously, greens were very receptive.
The winners admitted they did not play very well and they were not in the mood of a match play in the group.
« The conditions were difficult because it was windy when we started, we had to pay attention of making, cleaning and placing the ball and to be honest, we did not play that well. » said Chapellan.
« It was not easy to find a good rhythm during that round. It is kind of slow when there is mud on the fairways and you have to study study where to place the ball. But it was ok and I am happy with this result » explained Rozner.
The category 6, full right to play next season is for those players who finished +5 and better. They are 38 :
France : 11
England : 9
Austria : 5
Italie : 4
Nederlands, Scotland, Spain : 2
New-Zeland, Irland, Finland : 1
