Loughrey for second win
England’s Josh Loughrey won his second title of the season thanks to final round 69 in 2015 Cidatelle International Trophy. He finished the 72 hole event with -13 total, 3 ahead of Darius Van Driel.
Loughrey can be satisfied and proud with this win. Leader after 2 rounds he managed to stay very consistent and his playing partner during last round could not catch up with him. Loughrey holed for birdie on the first and put pressure on Van Driel. The latter answered right away with a birdie on the second, the match was on.
The Englishman turned first nine with 34 whereas the Dutch was level par. Par not not enough to threat the Tunisian Open winner who signed for best score tie 69 of the day.
Matt Wallace who finished third on his own – his best result tie this season – could have done better if he did not shoot himself with opening double bogey on the first. He never succeeded to come back, he only erased this mistake with 2 birdies for a level par card.
Loughrey won a check of 6250 € and these points make him jump on the top of the Alps Tour ranking. Van Driel made the biggest move as he enters the famous top 5 for the first time this season directly to the second place. Harry Casey is the only one not to move staying on the third step. Matt Pavon slides from the top to the 4th place and Damien Perrier is fifth.
