Gonnet shot low during day 1 in Preisch
Former European Tour Player, France’s Jean-Baptiste Gonnet fired 65 during first round of Citadelle Trophy International-Golf de Preisch. To complete the 100% French podium, amateur Edgar Catherine and Louis Cohen-Boyer with 66.
Gonnet lost his privilege on European Tour a few years ago after 7 full seasons to play. He described his joy to shot so low after time of doubt.
« I am really fine thank you. I had a 4 week break without hitting a ball. I needed to make this pause as we had many back to back events in spring and early summer. To come back on Alps Tour and shot 65 is not kind of a surprise as I have been playing for a while but I am really pleased. I am very confident in my game system and I do not need to practice as much as I used to. It is very efficient.
My game is great, I feel alive again. You know I almost quit the game two years ago and I would never thought to play this good again. I am pleased to have meet my coach Antoine Maisonhaute. It would not have been possible without him. »
At 4the place tie, another former European Tour player Anthony Snobeck. The latter shot 67 alongside Spain’s David Borda and Austria’s Clemens Gaster.
