Arnaus to grab maiden win, finally!
Spanish amateur Adria Arnaus finally sealed his maiden as pro defeating France’s Grégoire Schoeb after extra hole in a play-off. He signed for 67, a 3 under par card during last round for -13 total.
It took just 3 tournaments to talented Spanish amateur to grab his first victory as pro on the Alps Tour. He had played only 2 events before Villaverde Open and twice, finished second including a play-off lost on home soil.
The 22 year old player took the lead after first round and played in last group this Saturday close to the Alps Tour leader this morning, France’s Ugo Coussaud. But the threat did not came from his playing partner but from another Frenchman Grégoire Schoeb. The latter fired 65 to settle the winning score at -13.
Arnaus holed for birdie on the last hole to get into the play-off but this time, he did not fail to put pressure on French rookie and eventually, finally won the trophy. Thanks to this win, he is now the new leader of the Alps Tour ranking. He did not get the money of the 1st rank, Schoeb did, but he got the points for the ranking. His stats results are amazing, 3 events played = 2nd, 2nd, 1st.
Coussaud lost one place, Nemecz is third, Lars Van Meijel and Last week winner, Thomas Elissalde are respectively 4th and 5th.
