Pujalte happy in Italy
Spain’s Miguel “Puji” Pujalte captured his maiden win and lifted the trophy of Open di Publia Basilicata. Italy has always been kind to hom. After finishing second at the qualifying stage of the Alps Tour last year on same courses, he got his best result as runner up at Le Fonti beginning of June.
This morning, he was one stroke back of the lead after a great -4 front nine he stayed focus and calm to hole nine par in a row and win with easy margin of 3 shots. He signed for -13 total.
At second place, Italians Andrea Rota and the Alps Tour player of the year, Matteo Delpodio. After third win last week in France, Delpodio shot the best score of the day, 66, -5 to finish on the podium again and increase his margin on the top of the ranking. He succeeds fellow Andrea Perrino as winner of the Alps Tour order of merit.
Obviously, this final event was the last chance for some players to entr the top 5. One regret for Juan Antonio Bragulat. He dropped 3 shots on the last and it cost him the fifth place but he still have chance to play on the Challenge Tour next year. If one of the top 5 players makes the cut during the Final Stage of qualifying school, Bragulat will be the first on the list to take the free spot…
A very good reason to wish all the best to England’s Matthew Cryer, Scotland’s Gavin Dear, Frenchman Alan Bihan, Englishman Jason Palmer and Italian Matteo Delpodio…
