3rd July 2014 | Alps Tour Golf
Hesbois and Rodiles in command
Belgium’s amateur Kevin Hesbois and experimented Spaniard Carlos Rodiles are in command at -5 in Flory Van Donck Trophy. France’s Xavier Poncelet and England’s Josh Loughrey are on their toes one shot behind.
Hesbois, 23 year old, is playing on Alps Tour to test his game and to learn his job. He has a great support from the Fédération Royale Belge de Golf and he is doing quite well since the beginning of the season. His game became sharper and sharper and he have just won on home soil Trophy of Flanders last week.
Should he manage to keep his momentum during last round,he could walk in Hugues Johannes’ paces tomorrow by claiming the trophy.
But the competitor behind him is not a spring chicken. Rodiles, former European Tour player, won the Gecko Tour ranking and could lean on his experience to try to grab his maiden Alps Tour victory. Despite his colourful front nine, from 10th to 18th, with two double bogeys, one birdie and one par, he managed to sign for 72 thanks to three birdies coming back to the club house.
Poncelet and Loughrey will be the men to watch as well. The latter recorded a third place last week in Madrid and the Frenchman had a runner up place two weeks ago in France.
The cut felt at +4.
