James Sharp sealed maiden win in Italy
England’s James Sharp sealed maiden win in Cervinio Open after final 65, -4 and total -11. Spain’s Santiago Tarrio finished one shot further for second place on his own and France’s Ugo Coussaud climbed on the podium with -9 total.
The Cervinio Open had a slox start as the bad weather force the officials to stop the game during first round and many players had a long day to complete their two round on day 2. But eventually, the event was played on 3 rounds and provided suspens as big events can do.
Julien Brun was the leader after 2 rounds and 3 holes from the end he could have reach the lead. England’s james Sharps was leader at the club house but the Frenchman, usually solid, was on shot behind with 3 holes to play. Luckily for Sharp, it was not a bed of roses for Brun and he dropped 3 shots in the last three holes. Sharp could enjoy a maiden win on Alps Tour.
Ugo Coussaud is the current leader of the Alps Tour ranking, Adria Arnaus is a little less than 2000 points further, Robin ROussel and Lars Van Mejel are neck and neck for 3rd and 4th place and Lukas Nemecz completes the top 5 with narrow margin over former European Tour player JB Gonnet.
