I’m very happy about the entire week, my game was in great conditions. I hit my shots all very well, I found the fairways, found the greens, and hit my putts super well. I want to thank the Alps Tour, the hotel La Cigale, and especially my team and sponsors. I want to thank Camilla, my fiancée and putting coach. Giovanni and Leonardo who are also part of my team and Silvia, my main sponsor, without you this would be impossible so thank you very much. I also want to thank the Tunisian Federation for hosting us.”
