Final Round Player Quotes

Italy’s Manfredi Manica captures his 1st professional win at the 2023 Aravell Golf Open by Creand by 1 stroke. He shot a bogey-free final round of 5 under-par, 66 with 4 birdies in his last 6 hole for a three-day total at 15 under-par. He is 27 years old, turned professional at the end of 2021 and currently represents Golf Nazionale. After he sealed his 1st win, Manica was very emotional: “Today is a very emotional day, especially my back nine. I believe the key was to stay patient. I struggled with my putting on the first few holes but hit some great shots. Paul was playing great and I didn’t think I had a chance. On the 15thhole when I saw Paul struggled I managed to birdie and started to believe I had a chance. I went on to birdie 16 and 17 and tried to par 18th and see what happened.”  When asked about what this win means to him, he added: “This obviously means the world to me. It’s a short season so every tournament is important this season and after this win the rest will be even more important as I now want to be in the top 5 at the end of the season.”
