Peugeot Tour Golf Escorpion
The Alps Tour settled in Spain this week. The Peugeot Tour is pleased to co-sanction Valencia tournament. The field were in the starting block this morning but had to wait for an hour before teeing off. The greens were frozen.
Some famous players decided to play in Spain this week. Spanish José Manuel Lara, member of the European Tour is one of them. Italian big hitter, Emanuele Canonica and English Benn Barham joined him for the first two rounds.
Barham explained : « I have lost my full membership on Tour this year, so I can not play until April so I looked at every schedule to find an event where I might play. I knew the course of Escorpion was good and that events run by Peugeot Tour and Alps Tour are great so I asked for invitation ».
Players from Challenge Tour too had no tournament this week so Baptiste Chapellan, Steve Lewton and Andrea Perrino, last year best Alps Tour players made the trip to Spain as well. Big challenge for Alps Tour rookies…
