But in Farso another great result came for Guido Migliozzi who finished second with 268 (69 68 68 63, -16). Runner up for the third time this season and for the second consecutive (he has returned from silver in the British Masters after that in April at the Qatar Masters).
A new close success for the Vicenza player but the almost certainty of playing the next US Open, scheduled from 17 to 20 June in La Jolla, California. With a great final partial (63, -8) bogey free, the best of the fourth and last round, supported by 8 birdies, the blue rose from the 14th position touching the big target.
But it is a heavy second place for Migliozzi since the Made in HimmerLand, as well as the British Masters (and together with the Porsche European Open, from 3 to 6 June in Hamburg), are among the three Eurotour tournaments that are up for grabs.
places (ten in total for the best of a special ranking of the top continental circuit) for the US Open. On the other hand, Nino Bertasio ranked 25 / o with 275 (-9), with Lorenzo Gagli 59 / o (280, -4) and Renato Paratore 71 / o (284, par).
After the success of 2019 – in 2020 the tournament was canceled for Covid – for Wiesberger (winner of the 2019 Italian Open) a new exploit has arrived at Made in Himmerland. That of confirmation. The Board of Directors of the LPGA has unanimously elected Mollie Marcoux Samaan as its next Commissioner.
Marcoux Samaan, currently Ford Family Director of Athletics at Princeton University, will become the ninth Commissioner of the LPGA since its formation in 1950. She will succeed Commissioner Mike Whan who notified the LPGA Board late last year of his intent to step down in 2021.
Whan was recently announced as the next Chief Executive Officer of the USGA. Marcoux Samaan will be working with the LPGA Board and the University to transition to her new role in the months ahead. “Our selection of Mollie Marcoux Samaan as the LPGA’s next Commissioner is the outcome of an extensive and deliberate search process.
The position attracted a diverse group of outstanding internal and external candidates, all passionate about the LPGA. We concluded that Mollie is the right leader to guide the LPGA’s next chapter of growth, impact and achievement,” said Diane Gulyas, Chair of the LPGA Board of Directors and the Search Committee.
“Mollie understands the power of golf to change the lives of girls and women. As a values-centered leader, she’s known for her skills in collaboration, managing through complexity and building a winning team culture.
In every role, she’s had an outstanding record of performance in navigating change, forging lasting partnerships, and seeing – and seizing – new opportunities,” Gulyas said. “Our search process was disciplined and thorough.
We were impressed and honored by the large number of quality of leaders interested in the LPGA. But in the end, Mollie stood above the rest. We were impressed by her track record working with athletes; with her ability to forge new and innovative partnerships; and with her personal passion, authenticity and proven persistence for excellence,” said Juli Inkster, World and LPGA Hall of Famer and a member of the Search Committee.
