Maiden win for Guido Migliozzi
Guido Migliozzi defeated two Frenchmen, Alex Daydou and Julien Foret in a play-off after thrilling day. The 20 year old player and his two opponents were -14 after 72 holes and had to play extra time. Migliozzi eventually lifted his maiden trophy in front of his public.
This last round of Abbruzzo Open was a tragedy. No less than 6 different leaders were in contention. Overnight leader, Gregory Molteni, turned first nine over par and then lost his chance to win ; meanwhile a pack of players did well leaving the club house and the swing of leaders started when coming back home. One of the first to reach -14 was Niccolo Quintarelli, then they were 5 ties for the lead then Antoine Rozner took command but dropped a shot on his last hole.
Julien Foret shared his last round with Daydou. The latter holed for birdie on the last to join his playing partner and Migliozzi at -14.
The top 5 is the following : 1st Ugo Coussaud (FR), 2nd Adria Arnaus (SP), 3rd Antoine Rozner (FR), 4th Lars Van Meijel (NL) and 5th Robin Roussel (FR).
