Final Round Player Quotes

Twentysix years old, Netherland’s Lars Keunen who represents The Dutch Golf Club, captured his 2nd Alps Tour title at the 2023 Tenerife Pro Golf Open co-sanctioned event with a three-day score of 22 under-par. He wins by 4 strokes after a bogey-free 9 under-par, 62 final round tying the tournament course record. The record was previously established by Peter Nygren and tied during the 1st round of the tournament by England’s Jack Floydd and in the 2nd round by Italy’s Gianmaria Rean Trinchero. During today’s round he made 1 bogey, 6 birdies and 2 eagles, which one occurred on the 18thhole to seal the victory. Keunen has been close to the top of the leaderboards in the majority of the events this season and is happy to have captured his 2nd win. After he sealed his 2nd win, Keunen commented: “I kept playing good golf and this week I finally was able to capture the win. It’s been a really nice week, a really nice course, beautiful views and it was easy to enjoy it. I’m definitely very happy to have captured the trophy.” When asked about his plans, he added: “I’m going to keep focusing on the Alps Tour events and then maybe play a few Pro Tour events in August when we don’t have any Alps Tour events. Right now, I’m really happy with the way I played. I stayed patient throughout the past few weeks where I was close and wasn’t able to get it done but now I’m glad it payed off! It feels really good.”

Jack Floydd from England, winner of the season opener 2023 Ein Bay Open in Egypt concluded the tournament in 2nd place, 4 strokes from the title. After being in the lead at the end of the 1st round, he was tied for 3rd place at 13 under-par after yesterday’s second round. He shot a bogey-free 5 under-par,66 round today with 5 birdies. He is 26 years old and represents Haywards Heath Golf Club. When he finished, he was pleased of his “bogey-free final round today especially as the wind was blowing stronger than the first two rounds. My game is in a good spot even though I’m always trying to get better with my coaches and there are definitely a few things I will take away with me from this week moving forward. However, I’m overall happy with the week for sure.” 

Ireland’s Paul Murphy concluded the tournament in 3rd place with a total score of 17 under-par. He is 25 years old and represents Rosslare Golf Links. He shot a bogey-free final round with 4 birdies and 1 eagle on the par 5, 5th hole. After his bogey-free final round, Murphy was proud of how he “played flawless in the final round, proud of myself for that. Few more putts would have been nice but I gave it my all. Starting the tournament with a 63, I knew and believed I’d be there come the end of the last day. All I had to do was put up a score and see what happened. Congratulations to Lars! It wasn’t an easy day. To win in style with a 62 is something else. I really enjoyed the overall experience of the tournament. Each week I have the opportunity to be the best I can be as a golfer. The coastal scenery was pretty spectacular this week also.”

France’s Benjamin Kedochim, who was tied for 14th place after round 2, had a bogey-free final round of 8 under-par,63 for a three-day total of 16 under-par.  He concluded the tournament in 4th place. He made 8 birdies in his final round. Kedochim is 28 years old and currently represents Biarritz Le Phare. His best finish so far this season is a 2nd place at last week’s event at the Alps de Andalucía. After his bogey-free final round, he feels like “there wasn’t anything different from the past two rounds other than I got a few lucky bounces on 2 holes, I got a good bounce on 16 which then I was able to birdie and on 18 even if I didn’t make birdie. I stayed really focused, I made a clutch putt on the 4th hole and then took advantage on the 5thhole and 9th hole, two easy par 5.” He believes that he “didn’t play great but the putts dropped and I was able to score so it was a good day overall.” Kedochim added that his biggest takeaway from the past two weeks is that “I believe sometimes you only need to wait and your time will come. Do your best, don’t complain and stay in the present. You also must enjoy playing golf. I’ve never enjoyed playing like I currently am and the results are coming.”
