At Guyancourt's Le Golf National (par 71) behind him was Rasmus Hojgaard, one shot off. A decisive birdie (nine those made in the final lap, of which five consecutive) in the final that allowed the Mile to overtake the Dane, leader in the first three rounds.
In third place with 273 (-11) the French Paul Barjon, the South African George Coetzee and the Belgian Thomas Pieters. The exploit earned Migliozzi (who scored his best lap of the season and equaled the course record) a check for € 510,000 on a total prize pool of three million.
And it allowed him to gain 79 places in the DP World Tour Rankings, where he is now 21st.
Guido Migliozzi, results
Third Italian to win the Open de France after Ugo Grappasonni in 1949 and Costantino Rocca in 1993, Guido Migliozzi celebrates his third career title on the DP World Tour.
Francesco Molinari finished second three times (2010, 2012 and 2016) . The joy of the 25-year-old from Vicenza is more than understandable. "It was a beautiful day. I love to fight on the course and today I was rewarded by golf.
The second shot at 18 was something incredible, although my caddy was not happy with the strategy adopted. I wanted to try and this time I was right. I wasn't nervous because I liked what I was doing on the pitch and I really enjoyed it.
My goal was to keep the card for next year and to have a good tournament here. But now the points earned for the Ryder Cup 2023 give me the right push to aim for a place in the team. I didn't give up and now I want the Ryder Cup, it's my dream ”admits Migliozzi after hugging his girlfriend.
And in this regard, there was no shortage of compliments from Luke Donald, captain of the European team. “Grande Guido, congratulations”, the tweet reserved for him by the British. The two had played for the same team at the Italian Open two weeks ago.
