Pierre Pineau, few centimeters from history

In a video posted on the DP World Tour Instagram account, Frenchman Pierre Pineau narrowly missed making a hole in 1 on the 13th, a short par 4 on the Mont Choisy course.

Pierre Pineau, history

Well placed in the penultimate part in the last lap of the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open Pierre Pineau gave everything on the last third of the course to try to grab a runner-up.

The Vaudreuil player even came very close to a resounding feat by brushing the hole-in-one on a par 4. His wood shot came to rest less than 50 centimeters from the hole and Pineau made an eagle! If his ball had gone in he would have become one of the very few players in history to have hit an albatross on a par 4.

On the Pga Tour it is a "Parisian" who is the only one to have his name inscribed in tablets and it dates almost from the last century! The Republic of Mauritius, also referred to in Italian as Maurizio, is a state insular of Africa; it is located in the southwestern Indian Ocean 550 km east of Madagascar.

In addition to the main island of the same name, it also includes the islands of Agalega, Cargados Carajos and Rodrigues. Mauritius is geographically part of the Mascarene Islands archipelago, which also includes the French overseas territory of Réunion, about 200 km southwest.

Mauritius has no official language; however, being a former colony of the United Kingdom, from which it gained independence in 1968, the language used in parliamentary acts is English, although the most widely spoken is Mauritian Creole, largely based on French with English, South African and Indian influences .

Slightly less than 4% of the population is instead pure French speaking. There is no state religion, but the most practiced is Hinduism, from more than half of the population, to about 70% of Indian origin descended from workers sent there under the British Empire in debt servitude.

It is the only African country with a Hindu majority. The island's climate is tropical, with winds blowing from the southeast; the winter, dry, goes from May to November; summer is humid. The phenomenon of cyclones is quite frequent from November to April.

The largest and most important city on the island is the capital, Port Louis, located in the northwest. Other notable towns are Curepipe, Vacoas-Phoenix, Quatre Bornes, Goodlands, and Beau Bassin-Rose Hill.
