Italian golf is back to having a beautiful day: Guido Migliozzi is the third blue in history to win the French Open. And he does it with a magnificent -9 on the last lap, complete with an exceptional second shot at hole 18 for which the highest possible and imaginable comparisons have been wasted.
Guido Migliozzi, statements
Thus the man from Vicenza at the end of his performance, in the interview of the winner on the microphones of the DP World Tour: "An explosion of sensations. An incredible day, I played very solidly.
I was very comfortable with my game. I love to play golf, I love the battle on the field. I kept playing hole after hole. I wasn't nervous, I liked my game. It was exceptional " Yet, at the start, it didn't really seem like a victory day: “I didn't think I could actually win.
The main goal of the season was to keep the card. I changed something a bit, Callaway was with me, it helped me. I tried to change my attitude, to be more comfortable on the pitch. Yesterday Rasmus made that mistake on the 2nd hole and reopened the race.
" For three years Migliozzi had not won any tournament, while several second places had arrived: “I had faith in the fact that one day I would come back to win. It's incredible. I have worked as hard as possible this season.
I had a lot of expectations but they didn't translate into results. It's wonderful to think you have the cup in your hand " A thought also for all those who remained by his side: "It is always very nice to have the family close, even in Rome I played very well even if I missed a few shots.
I continued to train a lot and there was the reward. Today was one of those days when I proved to myself that I can do very well “.
