Jack Senior recreates dream in Guadeloupe


England’s Jack Senior won the Open de Saint François with the biggest margin in the Alps Tour history. The 23 year old from Lancashire shot 66 for -21 total, a record in itself for a 4 round tournament. France’s Thomas Fournier did the show to grab second place over England’s Steven Brown and Scotland’s Ross Kellett.

Senior was on the fast track to victory when he teed off this Sunday. He had a 6 shot advantage and only had to play safe and enjoyed this last last. But Senior is not this kind of player. He needed birdies again and again. His playing partner of the day, Javier De Lope, could only be the witness of Senior crowning.

For once, the battle of the day was for second place and one man decided to disturb British players from being Senior’s heir. France’s Thomas Fournier, 32 year old, arrived in Guadeloupe in good form, he had finished second at Lumar Slovenian Open the week before. He played wonderful and only a bogey on the last hole prevent him from playing the score of the week. But the great 64 he signed for was enough to keep a runner-up precious place by his own.

Jack Senior, as a last-ditch stand, completed his round with 3 birdies in a row. He made the show until the end and spectators enjoyed to celebrate a winner with such flair.

Obviously, Jack Senior is the leader of the Alps Tour order of merit with almost 7000 points margin over new second France’s Thomas Fournier. At third place, Ireland’s Brendan McCarroll then Gareth Shaw from Northern Ireland and at fifth place, Scotland’s Ross Kellett.
