Home made victory For Jerry Sarvadi at The Renaissance Club

For the second time in its short history the very secluded Renaissance Club, situated on the east coast of Edinburgh and adjacent to some of the World’s  greatest golf clubs such as Muirfield, hosted the 3rd leg of the 2018 World Amateur Tour.

The players were delighted to discover the golf course and notice the incredible changes and improvements in only a few years.

Jerry Sarvadi, owner and president of the Renaissance Club was happy to announce that the club would host the Scottish Open for the next two years, giving it a fabulous exposure and stature in the World of Golf.

As the players arrived for the practice round,  with a wind blowing nearly 100km/h, the course offered one of the toughest tests of golf. Nothing could stop the players that day, as some of them played 31 holes to end up just before the welcome dinner.

The next morning, the first round was going to be played in better conditions with a decent wind and some sun. Jerry Sarvadi (USA)  took the lead with Patrick Aidan (France) followed by Jean-Michel Barbey (Switzerland) one point behind.

The second round did not lead to much  suspense as Jerry Sarvadi, helped by his perfect knowledge of the course, was going to play a great round of golf shooting 33 points Stableford to secure a second victory at The Renaissance Club.

The battle for the second place was extremely tight with three players in three points. Christophe Guedon took the second place and first prize in second series, Patrick Aidan with a final birdie on the 18th finished 3rd , as Jean-Michel Barbey with a 4th place general won the Senior series first prize.

There is a big change in the order of merit this week. Jerry Sarvadi takes the lead with 15400 points while Cannes Mandelieu resident Christophe Guedon seized the second place just ahead of Dominique Rey and Gregory Pipkin. No change in the Women Series with Anne-Catherine Robin  and Stéphanie Chapon on top of the ranking.

Next stop will take place in China at superb Jinji Lake Golf Club near Suzhou from September 13th to 16th .
