Final Round Player Quotes

Italy’s Mattia Comotti, 24, wins his 1st Alps Tour title at the 2024 Memorial Giorgio Bordoni presented by AON. He moved in the lead after yesterday’s round 2 and today he shot a 3 under-par, 67 to conclude the tournament with a three-day total of 15 under-par. Comotti turned professional at the end of July 2023 so this is his 1st full playing season on the Alps Tour as a professional player. In today’s final round, he made 4 birdies and 2 bogeys on the front nine and then 2 more birdies and 1 bogey on the back nine.  After his win, Comotti was very emotional and commented: “I’m extremely happy, I’m speechless to be honest. To earn my 1st win as a professional in not even a full calendar year since I turned pro is truly amazing. This win is for my entire family, but especially my mom, who passed away. To be honest I wasn’t expecting this win, I hadn’t booked a hotel room for last night. Normally, I’m always right on the cut line, but today, to be playing in the final pairing today and earn the win is extraordinary.” Comotti took the time to: “congratulate my playing partner Enrico Di Nitto. He’s a great fighter and we were very close for the entire day. Had he made the putt on the 17th hole, we would have been tied heading to the 18th and it would have been a great fight. I had a short putt on the 18th hole but I told myself if I miss I lose and need to play in a playoff against a great player so I really concentrated on making the putt.” For the rest of the season he plans on: “playing the entire Alps Tour season this year and trying to conclude the season as high as possible in the Order of Merit rank.” 

Enrico Di Nitto, 31, from Italy, shot a final round of 4 under-par, 66 to conclude the tournament in 2nd place, only 1 stroke from the winning score with a three-day total of 14 under-par. He made 2 birdies and 1 bogey on the opening front nine and then made 3 more birdies to close out his round.  Di Nitto is a past winner on the Alps Tour and has achieved various good finishes over the years.

France’s Benjamin Kedochim, 29, concludes the 2024 Memorial Giorgio Bordoni presented by AON with a 3rd place finish and a total score of 11 under-par. He made 3 birdies on the front nine and 3 bogeys on the back nine holes to conclude his final round with an even-par round. Kedochim has earned several top 5 finishes in his career but is continuing his pursuit in trying to capture his 1st title on the Alps Tour. He has been playing consistently well since the beginning of the 2024 season and plans on continuing to work hard to hopefully earn a trophy in the upcoming events.

After the 5th event of the season, the Alps Tour Order of Merit rank has Edoardo R Lipparelli still in the lead with 14,715 points. Aymeric Laussot remains in 2nd place with 12,001.50 points and Benjamin Kedochim moves into 3rd place with 9,416.25. Enrico Di Nitto is now in 4th place with 8,960.25 and Gianmaria Rean Trinchero is in 5th place with 7,425 points.
