In third place with a score of 204 (-12) was Swiss player Luca Galliano, followed by Manfredi Manica in fourth place with 206 (-10). Despite leading the rankings after 36 holes, Manica couldn't maintain his pace in the final round.

Also among the top finishers were Frenchmen Nicolas Muller and Augustin Hole, as well as Spaniard Manuel Morugan. Cristiano Terragni secured eighth place with 207 (-9), tied with Borja Martin from Spain, while Jacopo Vecchi Fossa claimed 11th place with 209 (-7).

Ludovico Addabbo finished in 18th place with 210 (-6), followed by Filippo Bergamaschi in 21st place with 211 (-5). Lipparelli staged a remarkable comeback from sixth place, seizing the lead with six birdies in the first 12 holes.

However, Laussot managed to overtake him with an eagle on the 17th hole, securing victory with a score of 67 (-5) and claiming his first title on the tour. Laussot, aged 23, studied at Texas Christian University and currently resides in Paris.

He turned professional last year after participating in the PGA Tour Canada Qualifying School. Despite finishing 12th and earning a conditional card, he decided to join the Alps Tour to be closer to his family. The Ein Bay Open, previously won twice by Italians (Michele Cea in 2018 and Stefano Mazzoli in 2022), marked the beginning of not only the circuit but also the three races comprising the Winter Series scheduled in Egypt.

The upcoming events include the Red Sea Little Venice Open (25-27 February) at Sokhna GC (Course B&C), followed by the New Giza Open at New Giza GC (1-3 March) in Cairo. The rules of golf are relatively complicated compared to other sports because they are applied outdoors, close to nature and animals.

Respect for the rules is a basic element in the game of golf, which, almost always based on the self-control and free conscience of the players, often sees distorted results, consciously at times, but often unconsciously or through carelessness, due to non-compliance on the part of many players of the game rules.

In addition to rules, golf adheres to a code of conduct, known as etiquette, which generally means playing the round with due respect for the golf course and other players. Etiquette is an essential component of this sport.
