Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge: Three to Watch

The Road to Mallorca arrives in Normandy this week for the Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge. Ahead of play getting underway tomorrow morning, here are three players to keep an eye on this week…

Form horse: John Parry

John Parry - Blot Open de Bretagne

John Parry enters the Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge off the back of a second victory on the 2024 Road to Mallorca at the Blot Open de Bretagne last week, following a play-off victory over Swede Per Längfors.

The Englishman – who returned to the winner’s circle for the first time in 14 years at the Delhi Challenge back in March – now has the opportunity to earn automatic promotion to the DP World Tour for the remainder of this season and the 2025 season if he can secure a third Challenge Tour title this year.

Local boy: Clement Guichard

Clement Guichard will be in familiar surroundings this week when he tees it up at Golf PGA France du Vaudreuil, his home course.

The Frenchman is playing his first season on the Challenge Tour after gaining promotion through a third-place finish on the ProGolf Tour last year, but has yet to rediscover that form on the Road to Mallorca this year. He will be hoping to use his course knowledge to kickstart his season.

The outsider: Gregorio De Leo

Gregorio De Leo - Blot Open de Bretagne

Gregorio De Leo recorded a season-best finish last year at the 2023 Le Vaudreuil Challenge after firing a six under 66 in the final round to finish in a tie for third place.

The Italian lies just outside the top 50 on the Road to Mallorca Rankings after 12 starts on the Challenge Tour this season – including a season best eighth place finish at the Challenge de España last month – and will be targeting another strong performance in Normandy to catapult him up the Rankings.
