Caturla and Riu

It is finally the pair composed of Stanislas Caturla and Victor Riu who wins the French International doubles. In Reunion Island, they won the play-off against Alexandre Daydou and Julien Sale.

Stanislas Caturla and Victor Riu started with a stroke behind the two leading players (-10) and managed perfectly the last round of the French International Doubles. On the Bassin Bleu course, Caturla and Riu made a great start with two birdies and an eagle.

We complemented each other very well with Victor, we were in symbiosis and harmony throughout the game ” said Stanislas Caturla. A game concluded with a final birdie on 18 and a card of 61 (-10). A performance that allowed the two friends to go to the play-off against Alexandre Daydou and Julien Sale from Reunion.

A play-off in foursome

For the first time in history, the tournament ended in sudden death. And if the last round was played in four balls, the play-off was played in foursome.

After two magnificent birdies on 7 with a 6m putt from Victor Riu to which Alexandre Daydou immediately responded by hitting 5m to keep his team alive, a laser iron shot from Riu on 18 (par 5) on his 2nd shot offered an opportunity for an eagle and a victory to his teammate.

The opportunity was converted for Caturla who did not hesitate to win the 2022 edition for his team.
