Sunny win for Maccario
Italy’s Federico Maccario won his maiden title on Alps Tour with 67 as final round and – 17 total and lift the Flory van Donck trophy in Mont Garni Golf Club. His fellow countryman Valerio Pelliccia finished second on his own thanks to a seven under par card. A group of three players share third position of the podium, France’s Raphaël Marguery, England’s Josh Loughrey and Spain’s Gerard Piris.
The latter learnd the hard way that golf can provide incredible or amazing story for joy or tears. Piris was co-leader at -17 teeing of the 17th. He had just holed for birdie on par 5 16th and was tie with Maccarrio. But the golf course played a bad trick to the Spaniard and he dropped 4 shots to slide from the leading position to the third.
With this win, Federico Maccario jumped to the 13th place of the order of merit. Harry Casey keeps his pole position, ahead of Damien Perrier, Josh Loughrey, Léo Lespinasse and Matt Pavon.
