Belgium’s Kevin Hesbois claimed his maiden win in a pro tournament. He scored one under par today, enough to grave his name on Flory Van Donck trophy with -5 total. At second place ties, one shot behind, French duo Xavier Poncelet and Clement Berardo. Berardo, who teed off early, signed for flawless 66, 5 under par to take early club house lead. Berardo had a really nice start this season in Egypt with two podium and ever since had struggled with his game. He seems to have recovered his good form.

Poncelet was also in contention two weeks ago and for sure the player from Bordeaux is in good form. It was a long distance battle with Hesbois as Poncelet did not play in same group. Rodiles, overnight co-leader had a poor day in the last group as he scored five over par and was never a threat to his playing partner.

The turn of the match was on 14th when Hesbois holed for birdie as the Frenchman have had a par a few minute earlier. This birdie was the seal of second win in a row on home soil for Hesbois as he won Trophy of Flanders last week.

With this podium, the Alps Tour ranking did not change but Kevin Hesbois, even is he did not get a check, earned the winner points, 5800 and jumped top 17th place.
