Langasque wins the 120th Amateur Championship Final

Frenchman Romain saw off the challenge of Scotland’s Grant Forrest

Frenchman Romain Langasque saw off the challenge of Scotland’s Grant Forrest to win the 120th Amateur Championship at Carnoustie .

Langasque, who hails from Cabris in southern France, took charge of the early proceedings in the morning round and won the par four 3rd hole after splashing out from a greenside bunker to a foot from the hole. Langasque was in commanding form as he won the 36-hole Final by 4&2 and he has secured a place in next month’s 144TH Open at St Andrews. The 20-year-old Frenchman sealed the win on the par three 34th hole when Forrest conceded the hole and the match after his tee shot had gone through the back of the green and his chip coming back went past the hole with Langasque facing a 10ft birdie putt.

“This is just a dream for me,” said Langasque. “It is just incredible that I am going to play at St Andrews in one month’s time for The Open.

Langasque becomes the third Frenchman to win the Amateur Championship after Philippe Ploujoux in 1981 and Julien Guerrier in 2006.
