Final Round Player Quotes –
Jack Floydd captures his first professional win at the 2023 Ein Bay Open by 2 strokes. He shot a final round of 7 under-par, that included 8 birdies and 1 bogey. He was the 1st round leader and only a few shots back after yesterday’s round. Today he was able to capture the win with one of the low rounds of the day. Jack is 26 years old and turned professional in 2020. This is his 3rd season on the Alps Tour and currently represents Haywards Heath Golf Club. After his victory, he was very happy, “I would like to thank my parents and my grandparents, they’ve been in this with me from the start. I’m very pleased with how the season has started. I have been working hard back home with my coaches so to see it pay-off early on in the year is exciting.” He went on to add that he found “today a little breezier than the first few days with some tucked pins so all parts of my game were in a good spot. I gave myself plenty of chances and holed a few mid-range putts.” Jack looks forward to the year ahead with hopefully more wins!
Italy’s Andrea Romano, just 22 years old, was near the top of the leaderboard for the entire week and concluded the tournament tied for 2nd place at 15-under par. After his round, he commented: “This week was an experiment for me. Last year I struggled severely with my putting and this year I switched and started putting left-handed. This result was unexpected but I’m very pleased with it. It shows that the change I made is currently showing progress. I’m happy with the way I began the year and looking forward to gathering some good finishes.”
Cristiano Terragni from Italy, who was just 1 stroke off the lead after yesterday’s round, shot a bogey-free, 4 under-par 68 in today’s final round concluding the tournament tied for 2nd place at 15 under-par. After his round, Cristiano commented, “Today I played well, I’m pleased to have put together a bogey-free round. I was in control of my game especially on the front-nine due to the fact that the pins were harder and there was more wind. However, on the back-nine I slowed down until I birdied on the 16th hole. He went on to add: “I’m happy to have begun the season with a 2nd place finish even if a win would have been better.”
In 4th place, the second-round leader, Spain’s Alvaro Hernandez Cabezuela with a three-day total of 13 under-par. In 5th place, just one stroke back Ireland’s Ronan Mullarney.
