Final Round Player Quotes 

Italy’s Edoardo R Lipparelli, 27, wins his second Alps Tour title at the 2024 New Giza Open. He was in a tie for 4thplace after yesterday’s round 2 and today he shot a fabulous bogey-free 9 under-par, 63 to conclude the tournament with a three-day total of 17 under-par.  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 over the years. After his win, Lipparelli proudly commented: “I’m very pleased, I played well today. Obviously when you put together a bogey-free round it’s always special but today my game was very solid. I always try to focus on hitting shot by shot and not focus on the overall result. I began my round making 4 birdies in the first 5 holes and even after doing that, I tried to focus on one shot at a time.”  He added that this is a special win to him as: “it shows that the hard work I did this off-season is paying off. It’s good to be back in the winner’s circle after these past few years. My goal remains the same which I think is the same as most of us players have, which is to conclude the season in the top 5 spots to earn one of the Challenge Tour cards.” Lipparelli also mentioned how “I found that the level of golf the players competing on the Alps Tour are playing has grown tremendously over the years. It showed even today with the scores that were made. There will be some exciting battles this season.” 

The winner of the season-opening event, the 2024 Ein Bay Open, France’s Aymeric Laussot, 23, concludes the tournament in a two-way tie for 2nd place only 1 stroke back at 16 under-par, alongside England’s Harry Goddard. He made 5 birdies on his opening front nine and then made 4 more birdies and 1 bogey on the back nine to conclude his day with a 8 under-par, 64. After his fabulous final round, Laussot commented: “8 under-par on the final round giving yourself a chance to win is all you can really do. Hats off to Edoardo to shot 9 under-par. We played together and to be honest it was a great golf show, hole after hole. He kept hitting it slightly closer than me, but my putter was hot today, and I made a lot of important putts. I’m really pleased with the way I played overall and I have a lot to take away from this Winter Series. I tried to put some pressure on him, but he’s been playing great the past few tournaments and he was extremely solid today.” 

Harry Goddard, 24, from England is the second player who concluded the 2024 New Giza Open in the two-way tie for 2ndplace at 16 under-par. After his 8 under-par, 64 round, Goddard commented: “The round went very well today. It was a bogey-free round which is always nice but honestly today I really hit the ball lovely which makes it even more rewarding.” When asked what he takes away from the beginning of the season, he added: “it’s been good to get out and play some competitive golf and to be able to finish the trip off with a T2nd place is good.”

After the first three events of the 2024 season, the Alps Tour Order of Merit rank has Edoardo R Lipparelli leading with 13,005.00 points. Aymeric Laussot and Jose Antonio Sintes Navarro (am) close out the top three spots. In 4thplace, Harry Goddard with 4,716.00 points and Eduard Rousaud is in 5th place with 4,606.18 points.

Final Round Player Quotes

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.”

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.”

Winners of the Alps Tour Ranking 2017-2020, In their words: The Last Chapter – So Far!

20 years of life and 20 different winners of the Alps Tour Order of Merit. For the 5th and final chapter of our story “In their Words”, we have asked the last four, from 2017 to 2020Adria Arnaus, Santi Tarrio, Edoardo Lipparelli and Jordi Garcia del Moral – to share their memories with us. Here’s what they recalled, with some really nice words from each one of them. 

Who’s going to follow in their steps by winning the 2021 Order of Merit? Just wait until October and see… In the meantime, enjoy these interviews. 

Class of 2017

Adria Arnaus (Spain)

I’m really proud to be part of the history of the first 20 years of the Alps Tour. I feel like it definitely made me the player I am today. Alps Tour got me in a position to kick off my career and made me realize I was good enough to compete with the bigger guys. 

I have so many great memories of the events I’ve played on the Alps Tour. You know, it is just different when you play in the bigger tours… it gets a bit lonelier; while playing the Alps, I’ve made so many great friendships travelling, sharing houses and moments with other players – not not only Spanish guys!, friends I still have today. On the Challenge and European Tour we are a bunch of players coming from the Alps and we all support each other and remember those times. 

I guess one of the most special moments I had, it was when I won the first Alps Tour event – The Villaverde Open in Udine, Italy – it was my third tournament and third playoff of the season, and I felt like I needed some help, so I went to see one of my friend (another Alps Tour player) David Morago, and he caddied for me that playoff and we were able to pull it through. This shows what the Alps Tour is, it is about competing but at the same time having the support of those you are travelling with, and that was great.

Along the same line, I feel like the courses were a lot of fun for me, they gave me the opportunity to be aggressive or to be cautious when I had to, they weren’t too long so that just made it very enjoyable for me, those “go and attack” kind of courses which reminded me of my home course in Catalonia, Moià, where you can get close to the greens in the par 4s and this would remind me of my roots back home.

It was a great year overall and I will always cherish those moments and I will remember all of the people I was with that year, and I hope that everything continues going forward in the situation we are in nowadays and I am sure we will hear more about Alps Tour graduates in the future”.


Class of 2018


The time I’ve spent playing on the Alps Tour is some of the happiest golfing memories I have, it is where I’ve learnt more, where I’ve forged my game in hundreds of battles, where we were all helping one another, no matter the nationalities, as if we were a family.

I cherish all those memories very much, and I’m grateful for the good friends I made: this is not always the case in some other tours. I think the Alps Tour is absolutely necessary to forge and toughen up any player facing a professional career; of course the economic side is difficult, but let me use a soccer metaphor: let’s say you learn the ropes in the Alcoyano (in third division), and therefore you’re used to a hard-working but humble team, to a certain level of stadium, stairs, changing rooms; and when you arrive at the Bernabeu in Madrid or at Camp Nou in Barcelona, then you’ll be able to play your best game more easily.

I remember the Alps Tour as a hard stage but with no doubt, immensely gratifying. I have been incredibly happy to win two tournaments and the Order of Merit in 2018. I think I’ve learned a lot in those years and so did my caddie, we strengthened up together: I am a better player now, and she’s a better caddie. We hope we can keep on progressing, never forgetting where we come from”.

Class of 2019 

Edoardo Lipparelli (Italy)

The Alps Tour is an important start for the approach to professionalism, it is where you begin to understand everything you need to do and how to manage yourself to work in golf. It sets a great foundation for what you will find later in the bigger Tours. I really liked the organization of the tournaments and the information and assistance we were given for the trips. I’ve never felt lost.

As for the experiences worth remembering, there are many. I really like the atmosphere after a lot of tournaments together with the different players and the team of the staff. I even dare saying that you become for us as a big family!

It has always been a pleasure to travel to be able to compete in the Alps Tour”.

Class of 2020 

Jordi Garcia del Moral (Spain)

2020 was a very important year for me. It has helped me to gain confidence because the standard level on the Alps Tour is becoming higher and higher every year. 

I would even say that 2020 was more important than 2012 and 2013 when I played on the European Tour. Now I feel I am more prepared than I was at that time and I’m going to work very hard to get back and enjoy it there. 

The best moment of the year was probably the -12 round I made at Gosser Open, in Austria; even though I didn’t win the tournament, it really meant a lot to me mentally, for my confidence.

I am very grateful for the effort made by the entire Alps Tour organization in 2020 as it was very difficult to get the tour going out with all the Covid restrictions!”.

Garcia Rodriguez is no surprise, wins Abruzzo Open Dailies Total 1

It was only a question of time for Spaniard Sebastian Garcia Rodriguez until he could raise a winning trophy again after that title he had conquered two years ago in the Alps de Las Castillas, in Spain defeating compatriot Adria Arnaus in playoff. Since the first tournaments of the 2019 season, Sebas showed the solid form that made him win Abruzzo Open Dailies Total 1 with two strokes margin and took him on top of the Order of Merit after six tournaments.

Garcia Rodriguez, 30, started the competition with a 65 (-6) and a tied second place after the first day on beautiful Miglianico Golf & CC, but was leading solo in the following round at -11, and was able to keep those 2-strokes margin also at the end of the third and final day with another 66 and a total -16, in spite of the « attacks » of other in-form players, like Italian Edoardo Lipparelli who eventually settled for a second place at -14.

« I’m very proud and happy I could finally win here in Italy », said Garcia Rodriguez, « I feel I’m on the right track that hopefully will lead me to the European Tour in the end, and in order to reach this goal I’m going to train and work as hard as ever. There’s no secret, I think that only hard work gets you where you wish to be, and that’s what I’ve been doing to finally win again ; but there’s always space for improving, you never have to be content ».

In Seba’s scorecards, only two bogeys in three rounds (none today) and 18 birdies (5 today) to get the winner’s cheque – 5,800 euros out of a 40,000 prize money : « I had been playing well for a while, but on the greens I had some troubles ; here in Miglianico, the greens were very good and I’ve putted really well, that was certainly the key ».

Lipparelli, 22, was feeling a bit exhausted after six weeks of tournaments in a row, where he actually performed quite well winning the French Qualifying School and adding a sixth place in the Italian National Championship to the very good scores he had in the Egyptian Winter series (a 2nd place in the Dreamland Pyramids Open and two more top tens) ; his rewards is the third place in the Order of Merit with 12.265 points – very close to the leader Garcia (12.569 pt) and fellow compatriot Lorenzo Scalise, second (12.437 pt) – and a pleasing sum of 10,930 euros after 6 tournaments.

In third place, Frenchman Julien Foret at -13 and fourth is Swiss Mathias Eggenberger at -11. A special mention goes to rookie Dutch Pierre Verlaar, who had an incredible aggregate of 28 strokes on the front nine with 8 birdies and a single bogey ; in the back nine his rythm slowed down – « On hole 12 I missed my birdie putt with a horse-shoe over the hole, and I’ve lost a bit of confidence there », he said – but nevertheless he finished with a 66 (-5) on 8th place with a total on -9.

The Alps Tour schedule will resume in three weeks in Spain, with Alps de las Castillas hosted by Golf Valdeluz in Guadalajara on May 9-11.
