The Hero Cup is over and it is the continental selection that finally wins after leading from start to finish: final score 14,5 to 10,5. It is recalled that the Hero Cup opposed a continental European selection to a British European selection.

Two Frenchmen were entered in this team event: Antoine Rozner and Victor Perez. The French number 1 Victor Perez performed particularly well during this competition bringing back 3,5 points out of four possible. The Tarbais formed a strong pair with the Italian Guido Migliozzi; two wins for a draw, before winning his singles match 4&2 against Jordan Smith.

Sunday was more difficult for Antoine Rozner who had to lose against the Englishman Tyrell Hatton 5&4. He did, however, earn one of the first continental points in the best-ball four-ball session by winning alongside Thomas Detry.

On the British side, the Scotsman Robert Macintyre must have marked the spirits of his, perhaps, future captain Luke Donald, earning 3 of the four possible points.

It is now hoped that this preparation competition has helped Luke Donald and his vice-captains in preparation for the next Ryder Cup in Rome in September 2023.
