European Men’s Club Championship: Pablo Alperi Lopez wins by three
Pablo Alperi Lopez shot 6-under 210 to win the European Men’s Club Trophy at Troia Golf, 25 miles south of Lisbon in Portugal.
Lopez carded rounds of 69-69-72 to win the title by a comfortable margin of four strokes over Mads Heller of Denmark and Jakob Lotschak of Austria, who shot a matching 54-hole total score of 2-under 214.
Heller carded rounds of 73-66-75 and Lotschak 68-75-71 to register joint runners-up finishes in the tournament.
Lopez entered the final round, maintaining a one-shot lead over the competition after carding consecutive rounds of 69-69 for a 36-hole total of 6-under 138. Meanwhile, Heller was in pursuit, trailing closely at 5-under 139 following rounds of 73-66.
Lopez kicked off his final round with a birdie and added two more, where he also posted the same amount of bogeys, including one on the final hole of the tournament. These fluctuations culminated in an even-par 72 round for the day, a score that proved more than ample for him to secure the title.
On the final day, only three golfers managed to break par: Lotschak, the runners-up finisher shot 1-under 71, Luca Memeo of Italy and Rafael Bobo-Lauret of France, carded matching final rounds of 2-under 70.
In 2023, Lopez has participated in over 15 tournaments, clinching two victories and accumulating three additional top-10 finishes to bolster his remarkable track record.
His most recent triumph occurred at the Campeonato del Principado de Asturias Absoluto tournament in Spain, where he emerged victorious by a narrow one-shot margin over the competition after carding impressive rounds of 69-64-69.
The tournament attracted 63 golfers hailing from 21 golf clubs across 20 different countries.
In the men’s club trophy competition, Smørum Golfklub from Denmark emerged victorious with its total score of 1-over 433 after carding rounds of 145-141-147. Royal Park I Roveri GC from Italy finished second at 2-over 434 with its rounds of 151-141-142.
