Maccario enters top 5 thanks to victory in Preisch

Italy’s Federico Maccario defeated two opponents in a play off to win his second title on Alps Tour. After final round 71 and -11 he had extra work to achieve to lift the Citadelle International Trophy – Preisch.

He teed off in the last group with fellow countryman Niccolo Quintarelli. They seemed to climb slowly but surely to the top of the ranking. Meanwhile, a famous name appeared on the leaderboard. Matt Wallace was chasing the leaders and he knows how to take charge. The latter had 5 wins in his five last events on Alps Tour. But it was a bit late and eventually, his final total score was -10 tied for fourth place with Enrico Di Nitto.

France’s Alex Daydou, 20 year old rookie, fired 69 and was the leader at the club house but on course, the two Italian players were -12 teeing off the 18th hole.

They both dropped one shot there and an extra time was needed to deem the winner. Quintarelli bogeyed the first play off hole and Alex Daydou failed on the second.

With this win, Federico Maccario enters the Alps Tour Top 5 at fifth place.
