Final Round Player Quotes

France’s Théo Boulet, 21, captures his second professional win in back-to-back events during this week’s 2024 Aravell Golf Andorra Open by Creand. He shot a final round of 4 under-par,67, making 3 birdies and 1 bogey on the front nine holes, and then he made 2 more birdies on the back nine. Boulet earned his 1st professional win at the 2024 Open International de la Mirabelle d’Or. After his win, Boulet was ecstatic: “It’s unbelievable, to be able to win back-to-back events, it’s amazing. You know, it’s always been the goal to be able to win, but to be able to win 2 events in a row is something very rare. It doesn’t happen often on a professional level. I’m very happy, it shows that the work I’m doing is paying off.”  It was a long day for the players competing during the final round due to the weather delays, and he explained how: “During the delay, I played cards with my friends and had a good laugh with them. However, as soon as we were told that we would be restarting, I returned to my bubble and focused on having a good warm-up and round. Now that I think about it, I think that the delay allowed me to think about something else and take some of the stress away.” Now that he’s won two events, Boulet said, “Nothing is going to change. I’m going to keep working like I’ve been doing, and hopefully, the season will continue on a positive note. Obviously, the ultimate goal remains the same, which is to move up to the Challenge Tour, and winning two tournaments puts me in a good position, however, the season isn’t over, so I must keep focused.” Boulet takes away a valuable lesson from this week’s tournament, “even though I didn’t hit it great, I learned to play with what I had. It was a big mental improvement for me. This win is for everyone around me, my sponsors who support me as none of this would be possible without them, my coaches for all the work we’ve doing, my family and my parents who support me from far as they cannot travel with me as they work. Now I will enjoy this win and then focus on the next tournament.”

Benjamin Kedochim, 29, from France, concluded the tournament in 2nd place with a three-day total of 13 under-par. He shot a final round of 4 under-par, 67 making 2 eagles, 3 birdies and 3 bogeys. The tournament ends with a two-way tie for 3rd place with a total score of 11 under par Italy’s Edoardo Giletta and France’s Paul Margolis.

The highlight of the day belongs to Spain’s Alvaro Hernandez Cabezuela, who made a fabulous hole-in-one on the par 3, 17th hole from 146 meters with a 50° wedge.
