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.
