Ravetto enters top 30 with Brabazon win

 

David Ravetto enhances his position as France’s top World Amateur Golf Ranking® player by winning the English Men's Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship at Sherwood Forest Golf Club. Ravetto took possession of the prestigious Brabazon Trophy when he defeated Ireland’s Mark Power and Christoffer Bring of Denmark in a playoff after the trio finished on 10-under 274.

 

Ravetto arrived in England by ferry at 2:30am on the Saturday before the championship. Another 90 minutes and he would have been forced to spend 14 days in self isolation in line with new quarantine rules for visitors from France.

 

The French player breaks into the top 30 for the first time by advancing 13 positions to 28th. Bring attains a career high ranking of 237th with a 138-place move. Power comes within one spot of his best WAGR® position with a jump of 18 places to 53rd.

Potter, who began the final round five shots behind Fioroni, returned a closing 8-under 62 thanks to obliterating the front nine with 28 shots, 7 seven under. He and Fioroni finished on 15-under 265. Fioroni, who took the 54-hole lead with a third round 61, jumps 111 positions to 330th.
