July 13th, 2019 – La Gomera (Canary Islands, Spain)

Excitement until the end. Two players marked the evolution of a final day at The Fred. Olsen Alps de la Gomera that was decided for the first time in a playoff.

Gonzalo Vicente Elena and Julian Foret were clear about what had to be done to secure the victory at Tecina Golf. And it was precisely in the first playoff hole where Gonzalo Vicente holed a 7-meters putt to clinch the first Alps Tour win of his career, while Frenchman Julien Foret, with a bogey, had to settle for second place.

Up to this point, and until the very end, it was a battle between two experienced players: on one side, Vicente Elena, 35, had returned a brilliant, bogey-free 65, finishing his third round with two birdies; on the other side Foret, 36, who started the last round in 3rd position, had reached the top of the leaderboard early in the day starting the first 3 holes with as many birdies, and adding an eagle on n. 9 and another birdie on n. 11, to go as low as -16, but had then faltered with bogeys on 12 and 16 and could only match Vicente Elena’s total of -14..

And the result of the play off already known: Gonzalo Vicente Elena takes the victory at Tecina Golf.

The Fred. Olsen Alps de la Gomera is celebrated thanks to Fred. Olsen SA as title Sponsor and the collaboration of Promotur Turismo de Canarias, Cabildo Insular de La Gomera, the Canarian Golf Federation and with the support of Kyocera. Promoted by JGolf18.0.
