Guido Migliozzi won for the third time on the DP World Tour at the Cazoo Open de France thanks to a masterful shot and a birdie on the 72nd hole. He won one step ahead of Norway's Rasmus Højgaard.

The 25-year-old was in great form all day at Le Golf National, birding nine, five in a row from hole 6 to hole 10. He saved the best for last, co-leading off the impressive 18 hole , one of the most difficult par fours in the history of the Tour. Guido Migliozzi simply hit a perfect shot, a 5 iron passed very close to the eagle, ending his race a few meters from the flag.

The Italian then returns the victory putt, after this shot to the flag, putt which allows him to equalize the course record of 62 (-9), and most importantly, the putt which guarantees him the victory of this Cazoo Open de France edition 2022.

Rasmus Højgaard, the tournament leader after each of the first three rounds, finished one shot behind Migliozzi with a final card of 68 (-3). Paul Barjon finished best Frenchman, 3rd alongside Thomas Pieters and George Coetzee.

Guido Migliozzi after his victory: “Since 2019, the road has been long, very long so far. I played very, very solidly last year and I came very close to winning. That's what I was looking for. This season has been weird. A lot was expected of me. I played big tournaments, Majors. My goals were very high, but I just wasn't playing well. Then I started to train in another way and I worked very hard and here I am now with a trophy in my hands and it's magnificent. »
