Except that in Saint-Briac, the wind is a formidable adversary, which can assess at any time, upsetting the rankings. » The Briacin Maxime Legros, back from the United States, will still be in his garden. “He placed second, in 2021, and probably will get his revenge. »

But the fun is there and the scenery is still just as fantastic. » At the start of the week, many walkers were also criss-crossing the walkway, their eyes fixed on the little white ball. “We are of course looking forward to doing the course with the players. »
