In a dramatic turn of events at the European Open held in Germany, Guido Migliozzi stumbled in the final stretch, ultimately finishing in 8th place with a score of 285 (70 70 67 78, -7) strokes. The tournament was claimed by Laurie Canter with a total score of 279 (68 66 73 72, -13).

Celebrating his first career title on the DP World Tour in Hamburg, Canter surpassed Austrian Bernd Wiesberger and South African Thriston Lawrence, both tied for 2nd place with scores of 281 (-11) after an impressive comeback in the final round.

Competing at the Green Eagle Golf Course (par 73), Migliozzi commenced the fourth round tied for the lead with Canter. However, over the last 18 holes, the Italian golfer paid a steep price, carding a 78 (+5) with only one birdie, four bogeys, and a double bogey.

Nevertheless, this performance brings the 27-year-old Venetian closer to qualifying for the Paris Games. Currently the second-highest-ranked Italian in the world standings, with just 15 days until the final showdown on June 17th, Migliozzi stands on the brink of his second Olympics appearance following his debut in Tokyo.

"I'm truly ecstatic, experiencing incredible emotions," expressed Canter amidst tears of joy. The 34-year-old from Bath, who tallied 18 birdies, an eagle, five bogeys, and a double bogey over 72 holes, secured the 372nd English victory in a premier continental men's tour event.

This remarkable achievement earned Canter a prize of $425,000 out of the total purse of $2,500,000. Germany, known as Deutschland in German, is officially called the Federal Republic of Germany (Bundesrepublik Deutschland).
