In Eure, the conditions were met for the holding and success of the 9e edition of Vaudreuil Golf Challenge 2022 : exceptional weather, a magnificent setting, an endowment of €260,000 (an increase of 50,000 euros) as well as organization and logistics masterfully prepared by the team formed around Jean-Claude Forestierthe owner of the Vaudreuil golf course.

In this context, the quality of the sporting competition was also there.

A thrilling play-off

At the end of the first three days of the Challenge Tour du Vaudreuil, 61 golfers bringing together 16 nationalities (including representatives from different South Africa) were qualified on Sunday July 10 for a high-flying and suspenseful final which delighted the thousand people present around the course of the magnificent Vaudreuil golf course.

The very long Sunday day started at 7:40 a.m. for the furthest in the standings, and ended around 5:30 p.m. following the fourth hole of a breathless play-off between the English Nathan Kimsey (without caddy and carrying his bag) and the Frenchman Robin Sciot-Siegrist. Thus, our English friends are real accustomed to the victories of this challenge since they have won 5 of the 9 editions of the Challenge.

Three French in the top five

The French have distinguished themselves perfectly in this competition, which is attended by many foreign golfers of international reputation. Three in the top 5 of the general classification.
