Final Round Player Quotes

France’s Aymeric Laussot captures his first Alps Tour title at the 2024 Ein Bay Open by 1 stroke. He shot a final round of 5 under-par, 67 that included 1 eagle, 6 birdies,1 bogey, and 1 double bogey. Laussot turned professional in May 2023 after he graduated from college. After his victory, he was very happy, “I’m proud of the way I fought today even though in today’s final round I put a bogey and double bogey on the card. You know it’s my first Alps Tour event for me. The past couple of years have been tough for me, but I kept working, and I knew my time was going to come at some point. I’m just very proud of the process with my coaches, Greg Buisson, Antoine Schwartz, and Kenny Lesager. I have a very solid team around me, and we had some goals for this week which weren’t based on the result, but it was to commit and enjoy, and that’s exactly what I did.”  Laussot was in the field this week on an invite, “I want to take the time to thank the French Federation which gave me the opportunity to come play this week, I wouldn’t be participating if it wasn’t for them.” When asked about plans for the season, he added, “Obviously, after the win today, my plans for the season are changing. I will focus on playing the whole season on the Alps Tour and hopefully, a couple of Challenge Tour events if I get in. Now the main goal has become to end the season in the top 5 and earn my full playing status on the higher tour for next year.” 

Edoardo R Lipparelli, 27 years old from Italy, shot a bogey-free, 6 under-par, 66 in today’s final round to conclude the 2024 Ein Bay Open in 2nd place only 1 shot back.  He is a past winner on the Alps Tour, won the 2018 Alps Tour Order of Merit, and has collected a number of top 3 finishes. After his round, Lipparelli commented, “I’m overall very pleased with today’s round. I was able to have a good start, and it would have been even better if I made a few more putts down the stretch. I’m happy with where my game is at so early in the season and my consistency because, if I’m not mistaken, I only made 1 bogey this week. Overall, today, compared to the past 2 days, I think the only major difference was that I was able to make more putts, but I’m excited for the next events and bring this momentum.”

Luca Galliano from Switzerland who concluded the tournament in 3rd place, had the lowest round of the day during today’s final round with an incredible bogey-free 9 under-par,63. That is just 1 stroke shy of the course record set by Matt Wallace of 10 under-par.
