On Sunday, October 1, we put an end to the first tournament of our UGP Tour WAGR 2023-24 circuit held at the Parador de Málaga Golf, which, as usual, welcomed us with magnificent weather that would accompany us throughout the weekend.
With this tournament, the 2023-24 University Golf Spain tour began, which, as the fourth edition, will continue to give promising young golfers the opportunity to enjoy and continue working on their golf in competition.
In the rounds of Friday, September 29 and Saturday, September 30, taking advantage of the excellent conditions of the field and together with the great play displayed by both the male leader and the female leader, everything suggested that both Sebastián Desoisa, who started with -10, 4 strokes advantage, and Sara Moreno who started with -2, 3 shots ahead, would have a peaceful and calm Sunday to achieve victory.
But if golf has shown us one thing, it is that a tournament can change in a hole and even in a stroke.
On Sunday, the third day of the tournament, in the men’s category, Rafael Guerrero, who had been playing a solid round of -3, and Sebastián Desoisa, who was at par on the day, stood on the 18th tee with a one-stroke advantage. Sebastian’s favor. As we previously warned, in golf a tournament is not over until the last putt is holed, it was a ball out of bounds with the second shot by the leader at that time, which would cost him a double bogey, which gave a opportunity to Rafael Guerrero who, finishing the hole with par, earned him the victory of the tournament.
In the women’s category, both Cristina Albertazzi and Sara Moreno started the third day with a great game, reaching 16th, both playing under par on the day and with just one stroke advantage in favor of Sara. A series of errors made Cristina make 9 shots on this hole while Sara, the UGP Málaga player, made a great eagle, holing her third shot from 30 meters and definitively ending the tournament.
Congratulations to the champions!!!
We want to thank Parador de golf de Málaga for its collaboration in hosting UGP Tour events and all the players who have participated and consolidate the circuit each year.
