Nice success, one more, for the prestigious Lexus Pro-Am in Paris. Created at the beginning of the century by former European Tour player Christophe Ravetto and organized by the Swing agency, this major summer event, very popular with pros and amateurs, saw 100 teams and nearly 600 different players strike the iron, often hot, on the four jewels of the Paris region which are the Albatros (Golf National), Chantilly-Vineuil, Joyenval and La Boulie. The participants feasted on and off the greens (measured between 3,2 and 3,8 on the speed meter), the party ending as it should on Saturday evening with a "garden party" at La Boulie, where the 'we continued to swing, but to music this time. In total, more than 2 gifts were distributed, and not the least since a world tour worth 000 euros was offered by the Ciels du monde agency during the draw, which also made it possible to win stays in Mauritius (at Long Beach and at La Pirogue), in the Seychelles (at the Lémuria Resort in Praslin) or even in Réunion. Among others.

Classified in 34e and 35e position with an identical score of +13, Valentine Derrey and Joanna Klatten did better than two-thirds of the pros entered, Joanna's team even finishing in third place in the Pro-Am in Net. The final victory went to Arthur Ameil-Planchin (-9), who was just ahead of Nicolas Tacher (-8), nine players returning a score under par at the end of the four days of competition. Sébastien Vandooren's team with his fans Yves Rayssiguier (index 2,0), Stéphane Voisine (3,2) and Alexandre Gattegno (3,5) won the tournament in Brut with a total score of 560 (-14). In Net, it is the pro Guillaume Watremez, perfectly assisted by Hayato Aoki (10,6), Philippe Van Durme (10,9) and Benoît Pierlot (15,4), who wins the bet with a score of 512 (- 62).
