Scalise targeting further success in Le Vaudreuil

Lorenzo Scalise is hoping to continue his impressive form when he tees it up in the tenth edition of the Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge at Golf PGA France du Vaudreuil this week.

The Italian, who triumphed by three shots at the Kaskáda Golf Challenge earlier this month, followed it up with a tied 18th finish last week at the Blot Open de Bretagne, the first of back-to-back events in France.

The 27-year-old’s win in the Czech Republic saw him become the third Italian winner on the Challenge Tour in the space of four weeks, joining Matteo Manassero and Andrea Pavan as winners on the 2023 Road to Mallorca, and he believes the competitive nature of his compatriots shows that there could be more to come.

“I love the fact that we keep pushing ourselves and we're going to keep doing it,” he said. “There's a lot of Italian's playing on the Challenge Tour, so let’s see if everyone can have a say in it this year. We keep pushing each other and have some good camaraderie, so it's good.

“For me, it's about the right here, right now. It's another week and as I told my team, the week after a win everyone starts on level par. I’m trying to prepare right to put myself in contention again.”

Scalise has played the Normandy course on three occasions, with his best finish coming in 2021 where he finished in a tie for ninth, and he is looking to continue the aggressive approach that served him well in the Czech Republic.

“It reminds me a little bit of the course I grew up playing at home,” he said. “It plays a little different as it's a lot firmer, but it's that style of course that I think I can do well on. You need to drive it well, and I did that very well when I won in Kaskáda, and hopefully I can do the same.

“I'm going to keep doing my thing. I'm going to play quite aggressive this week and take quite a lot of drivers off the tee. We’ll see where it takes me.

“I'm going to be pushing hard over these next two weeks and then I want to take a break to reset. There's still a lot of golf left, a lot of points up for grabs and a lot of work still to be done.”

Scalise joins a star-studded field in Le Vaudreuil which includes past champions Steven Tiley and Richard McEvoy.
