Lukas Nemecz seals maiden win in Gösser Open
Austria’s Lukas Nemecz won the 25th Gösser Open on home soil. With final round 68 for -15 total, completed the 54 hole tournament with a 2 shot lead over France’s rookie Ugo Coussaud.
« Emotionally it is just really awesome. Winning a home tournament, it was great fun. It was a great week because I started shooting 64 on the first day and from that day I never left the lead. It makes a lot of fun, it was really thrilling at the end, I knew that some guys were coming close. I had a very good season on the Alps Tour in 2013 when I managed to go out for the Challenge Tour, I had a lot of top 5 and two or three runner up but I never won. The following year my brother won twice including the Gösser Open, and he is my younger brother so it is nice to at least win once, I am only one short of him now!
I manage though to stay very calm, for the last shot, it was windy and I could have been easily too long with the adrenaline as well. I had 127 meters which is normally perfect for a wedge but I hit a full sand wedge. I am very glad I made a very good shot. A bogey was a win too but it is nice finish this way.
I will now have a few Gösser ! »
Should Nemecz decides to take his Alps Tour membership he would jump the the third place of the ranking still hold by Lars Van Meijel.
