Widemann's fireworks in Egypt
France’s Alex Widemann grabbed maiden win thanks to final round 65 for -17 total. The 23 years old player from Golf des Bouleaux lifted the trophy of the third edition of Red Sea Little Venice Open.
He was tie with Englishman Tom Shadbolt when he teed off around noon in the last group. His opponent holed for eagle on the 3rd hole whereas he holed 4 birdies and one bogey on the first seven hole. He increased his advantage on the back nine showing great confidence in his putter.
“ I think I needed to miss that cut last week to fix my issues. Long game was good but as during the Q School in December, my putting was very poor. I have worked on it between the 2 events and I managed to recover my confidence and I did not miss any lines.”
Widemann has changed his status with this win but the good man, who just finished his metalworking industry HDN, stays humble.
“ I know that a win is just a beginning. I will try to play as many events as I can and hopefully I keep on doing well.”
Shadbolt ended 4 shots back of the win, finishing second on his own. To complete the podium, England’s Matt Wallace and France’s Léo Lespinasse. The latter confirms his good form as he already climbed on the third step last week.
