How good it is to feel the atmosphere of the competition again.

Taiwan’s Lan Tsai produced a beautiful game and quickly took the lead over Frenchman Jean-Philippe Talmon. 2018 World Amateur Tour Champion Christophe Guedon was in contention only two strokes behind along with Russian Alexander Krasnenkov. 
The second round played over Le Chateau Golf Course was going to offer a great battle between three players. Christophe
Guedon quickly took the advantage with a great start, one birdie and 4 pars. He ends up with a fabulous score of 40 points stableford to win the overall ranking by 6 points ahead of Alexander Krasnenkov who came second winning the senior series title, followed by Jean-Philippe Talmon.
In the ladies series Russia’s Irina Nesterova played a very constant game to overcome Terre Blanche’s Laeticia Chang and Yvonne Jones Cocker. 
 The Race to La Reserva is now on. All players are getting ready to travel to Andalucia for the next tournament to be played at Valderrama and La Reserva Club from November 12th to 15th.
 Due to very particular conditions this year, the World Amateur Tour committee has decided that the Tour Ranking will take in consideration the last three tournaments of 2020 and the events of 2021.
