Once again at the top of the leaderboard on Sunday, Julien Guerrier failed to find the rhythm during this last round of the Cazoo Open. The French returned a card of 76 (+5) and finished third in the event. Associated with Guerrier in the last part, the Englishman Callum Shinkwin will have been imperial this Sunday to lift the second trophy of the DP World Tour of his career.

The DP World Tour installed its infrastructure this week on a renowned course: Celtic Manor. This difficult course, the stage for the 2010 Ryder Cup, is a real test for players on the European Tour.

After three laps, Julien Guerrier once again found himself at the top of the leaderboard, in second position, thanks to cards of 67-68-68. He was quickly overtaken by the Englishman Callum Shinkwin, with whom he was to be associated in the last part on Sunday. Behind the French, a group of players was five shots in third position.

Unfortunately, the day got off to a bad start for our Frenchman who signed four bogeys for a birdie on his first five holes. He had to run after the score and after the English all his game, and despite a birdie on the 10th, his chances were quickly destroyed by a ball in the water on the 13th and a double bogey. A new bogey at hole 17 prevents him from remaining alone third.


Callum Shinkwin was able to return the putts at the decisive moments and despite numerous bogeys, the Englishman always knew how to keep his first place in the rankings scoring important birdies. His card of 70 (-1) and his total of -12 allow him to win the Cazoo Open, his second victory on the DP World Tour.

Frederic Lacroix ends his week with a card in the PAR. He ranks 25th at +2.

Gregory Havret, the third Frenchman to have passed the Cut, finished 49th this week at Celtic Manor.
