Alps de Las Castillas – Who to watch?
Alps Tour just made its first stop in Europe this week. Players traveled to Spain to attend the Alps de Las Castillas hosted by Cabanillas Golf in Guadalajara. The two 2017 winners, France’s Julien Brun and Lars Van Meijel will try to improve their ranking in the order of merit, respectively second and first.
The field is set to resume the season and some big names are to watch. France’s JB Gonnet, 7 full seasons on the European Tour, Spain’s Javier Colomo (picture), Asian Tour player since 2012. Javi made history at the 2015 AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open when he shot the first ever hole in one at a par four hole on the Asian Tour, European Tour and Sunshine Tour during the second round. Swiss André Bossert, winner on the Senior in 2017, could be a serious challenger as well.
These experimented players will have to battle the young guns such as Lukas Vacarisas, 18, in contention in Egypt, France’s Antoine Rozner and Robin Roussel. The latter won the Open d’Arcachon in France 3 weeks ago.
The first tee is at 9h00 local time and the weather should be fair with temperature up to 25°C in the afternoon.
