Stunning Sunday 62 earns Migliozzi French Open win

Italian golfing stallion Guido Migliozzi sensationally sounded his Rome Ryder Cup credentials with a stunning equal course record 62 to capture the Cazoo French Open title.

Migliozzi, 25, seized 10 birdies and none better than a stunning near 200-yard second shot over water into the last to set-up his six-foot winning birdie, celebrating the putt with a massive fist pump, and a third Tour title by a shot at 16-under par.

He said: “I am just feeling an explosion of feelings. I felt very comfortable with my game. I love to play golf and I love to battle on the golf course and I received back a great reward today.”

“So, to win is great as my main goal at the start of the season was to keep my card for next year. I was not playing that great but then I changed something in my equipment and with the help of Callaway. They have been with me in providing all my clubs. With their help I started playing better and I found I was getting more comfortable on the golf course.”

Victory lifts the Italian from 100th on the Race to Dubai to 21st, and the assurance of locking-in his Tour card at least to the end of the 2024 season.

Dane Rasmus Hojgaard, who led from day one and included dropping seven shots at the second and third holes on day three, played the same two holes in three-under on day four to be runner-up signing for a 68 and a 15-under tally.
