In the race for a first win among the pros, 17-year-old amateur Oihan Guillamoteguy didn’t waver on the last lap, quite the opposite! Author of an exceptional last card of -9, the tricolor prevailed with an eight shot advantage.
To those who wondered how Oihan Guillamondeguy was going to manage the 4 advance strokes acquired in the first two laps, the player from Seignosse brought the most dazzling response this Tuesday.
He did not leave the competition without chances by signing an exceptional 63 (-9), the best card of the tournament during the course of the Sokhna GC in Suez, Egypt.
This victory is incredible. I still can’t believe it.
The one who left Hossegor last April to join Seignosse and his mentor, Rene Darrieumerlouhe overtook two eagles in particular (on 7 and 17) on his last lap, relegating the first of his rivals, the Spanish Jorge Maicasin eight lengths!
“This victory is incredible. I still can’t believe it. The main goal was to stay focused on my game and I was very successful in doing that, only making 2 bogeys in 3 days! I put very well during all three rounds. Today, like from the beginning, I asked my dad for advice on the greens and he helped me make some putts.” the winner reacted on the official website of the tour of the alps.
The baccalaureate before the step pro
At 17 (born November 19, 2004), Oihan Guillamoteguy was the youngest player on the field this week. To support him, he was able to count on the valuable advice of his father, who has accompanied him to Egypt since the beginning of the season.
With his new status as tournament winner, the question of his transition to the pros comes up more than ever. However, Guillamoteguy’s position is very clear, as the director of Seignosse states, christophe rondele.
“First he wants to pass the baccalaureate and compete next April in the 3rd division French Championship with his home club. And then there is the World Amateur Championships in France this summer. »
On the night of the second tournament of the season, the youngster is second in the order of merit of the satellite circuit and will be at the start of the third Egyptian stage starting on Friday, not far from Cairo.
