Romain Langasque, statements
The journalist who brought to light the "affair" of Patrick Cantlay's cap during the Ryder Cup has paid tribute to the DP World Tour and the colossal human efforts which were accomplished so that the final round of the Dunhill Links Championship could have place, while Carnoustie was completely underwater the day before.
“It’s the best circuit in the world. There are so many great people here. The logistics put in place to allow the tournament to end and the immense effort of the greenkeepers on the three courses should not be underestimated.
This deserves praise,” he tweeted (or rather Xé). Except that Romain Langasque does not entirely share his opinion. The Frenchman, obviously far from calling into question the tremendous efforts made by the organization, replied: “I don’t think we agree.
It was playable for a Sunday round with a friend. Not for a final round of a professional event. » In our photo, we can actually see that the Carnoustie course on Monday was still very affected by the torrential rains which fell on Scotland all weekend.
Matt Fitzpatrick won at St Andrews on Monday, but 39 players decided to give up playing this final round. Romain Langasque finished in 110th place, after playing his final round at St Andrews. Romain Langasque expressed his disagreement with Sky Sports journalist Jamie Weir who praised the DP World Tour for having achieved the feat of playing the last round of the Dunhill Links Championsip this Monday.
Best tour in the world, the DP World Tour. So many great people there. The logistics involved to get this tournament finished (ish. 54 holes!) and the superhuman effort from the greenkeepers at all three courses cannot be underestimated.
Deserve so much praise. — Jamie Weir (@jamiecweir) October 9, 2023
