Italian golf is back to its glory days: Guido Migliozzi is the third blue French Open in history. And he does it with a stunning -9 on the final lap, complete with an exceptional second shot on hole 18, and the highest contrast imaginable wasted.
Guido Migliozzi, statements
So the man from Vicenza said in the winner’s interview on the microphones of the DP World Tour at the end of the performance: “An explosion of emotions. An incredible day, I played very hard.
I was very comfortable with my game. I love to play golf, I love the battle on the field. I just kept playing hole after hole. I wasn’t worried, I loved my game. It was special “At the very beginning, it didn’t really look like a day of victory: “I really didn’t think I could win.
The main goal of the season was to keep the card. I changed something a bit, Callaway was with me, he helped me. To change my attitude, I tried to be more comfortable on the field. Yesterday, Rasmus made that mistake on the 2nd hole and opened the tournament.
” For three years, Migliozzi did not win any race, while many second places were reached: “I believed that one day I would return to winning. It’s amazing. I worked as hard as possible this season.
I had high expectations but they did not translate into results. It’s nice to think that the cup is in your hands.” A thought for all the rest of his side: “It’s always great to be close to the family, even in Rome I played very well even though I missed a few shots. .
I continued to train hard and the rewards were there. Today was one of those days where I proved to myself that I can do really well.
