Results

Maiden Victory for Dominique Rey at West Cliffs Golf Links

For its first tournament in Portugal, the World Amateur Tour offered its players the opportunity to discover West Cliffs, first European course designed by a woman, Cynthia Dye, daughter of famous American architect Pete Dye.  She ingeniously took advantage of one of the the most beautiful landscapes in Portugal to design a seaside links along the silver coast, voted “World’s best New Golf Course” at the 2017 World Golf Awards.

This second edition of the 2018 World Amateur Tour welcomed seven new members of Swiss, Russian and Chinese nationalities, including two new ladies strengthening the Women’s Series.

After a tight race in the first round, for his fourth participation on the Tour, Christophe Guedon from Cannes Mandelieu took the lead, three points ahead of Dominique Rey (Switzerland).  To close the first round, the players met in a unique architect villa to mingle in a warm and friendly atmosphere, enjoying fabulous sushi and Portuguese specialties. The opening dinner was a great success.

In perfect weather conditions, the second round was going to be a superb fight between the leaders. Christophe Guedon was once again in contention until the 10th hole playing consistently, but experienced Swiss’ Dominique Rey produced a considerable effort to keep the contact and finally took a big advantage on the 15th hole with an eagle 3.

Dominique Rey finished with a two-point advantage over Guedon who would finally win the 2nd Series division. Disadvantaged by a hand injury, Jean-Michel Barbey, winner of last year’s Andalucia Classic Championship was quite disappointed as he was unable to do better than scoring only 8 points on the back nine. He finished 9 points behind the leader and seized the Senior Series trophy.

The Order of Merit has slightly shifted with Rey joining Pipkin at the top of the ranking with this victory. In the Women Series Anne-Catherine Robin joined Stéphanie Chapon on top of the ranking by winning the tournament with 44 points in stableford.

To perfectly end this second edition, Michelin Star Chef Rui Paula honoured the World Amateur Tour by coming onto the Bom Sucesso Resort to concoct an exquisite gala dinner. Many thanks to Rui Paula and his team for taking the time to mingle with our players and attend to their every need.

Next stop will take place at the very exclusive and private Renaissance Club in Scotland, hosted by member and owner Jerry Sarvadi, from June 14th to 17th.

No doubt that Sarvadi will give his best at home to jump on top of the 2018 ranking.
