Five amateurs to visit pro world in Rebetz
Last week-end, nearly a hundred players attended to Rebetz Grand Prix, a two day regional competition. Golf Club de Rebetz will host an Alps Tour event for the first time – 1st to 3rd of May – and the committee decided to invite the Grand Prix top 5 to challenge the pros.
Winner Ian de La Royère from Amiens shot 70 and 72 to grab a narrow margin title last Sunday. On stroke behind, Nicolas Singer of Bondues, signed for the best score of the week end with 69 last round. His team mate Mathieu Decottignies – Lafon completed the podium. The last two lucky men are Jack Lee from Saint-Cloud and Jean-Charles Conjard from Le Prieuré.
It will for sure be a great experience for these young amateurs but there are some players in the field waiting for more than a great time. Former European Tour big hitter, France’s François Delamontagne is entering the Open de Rebetz thanks to invitation. The 34 year old player from Brittany is looking for a new breath in his career. He has changed his technical coach last July, first time since many years, and step by step rebuild his confidence on golf course.
No less than 13 nationalities are represented including strong British team from England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. The current leader of the Alps Tour ranking, Andrew Cooley will have to compete against great challengers not to loose his crown. Next week could be a moving week as second and fourth of the ranking, Andrea Maestroni and Edouard Espana are not playing in Rebetz. Show is about to be launched.
