Bernd Wiesberger wins the Alstom Open in Paris, at Le Golf National.
Bernd got back to winning ways with a final round -6 under par 65, to collect the Alstom Open title posting a total of -13 under par.
Bernd really set the pace after the horns had halted play when lightning threatened;
“It’s been a great first half of the year for me so far.”
“I’ve had a lot of great success but just couldn’t pull it quite off. To stand here with the trophy right now, it’s pretty sweet.”
“This tournament has always been close to my heart.”
“I just hit a great shot down the fourth before the horns were blowing and they took us off the course. I liked my yardage, and had a good shot in there and had some momentum building, chipped in, holed a long putt.”
“I felt really comfortable out there. I had a great weekend, only one bogey, and 66, 65, that’s not a bad score.”
Second place went to James Morrison a last round -4 under par 67 giving him a tournament total of -10 under par, and three shots off the pace. He admitted that Bernd had played too well to be caught;
“My game is improving every day; I’m doing all the right things.”
“Bernd played too perfectly today. He won the golf tournament, it’s as simple as that. He played fantastic.”
Jaco Van Zyl finished third at -8 under par, a sad final round of +2 over par ending any hopes he had of winning. A consolation was he will be joining Bernd and James in The Open.
Martin Kaymer was in fourth place, -7 under par, and because Martin had already qualified for The Open, the final place on offer for St Andrews this week went to Rafa Cabrera-Bello, who finished in fifth place at -5 under par.
