Swiss Challenge: Three to Watch

The Road to Mallorca returns to Golf Saint Apollinaire this week for a third consecutive year. Here are three players in the Swiss Challenge field to look out for...

Form horse


Lorenzo Scalise has all but secured his promotion to the DP World Tour with his performances throughout 2023. The Italian is currently third in the Road to Mallorca Rankings and could climb to the top of that list for the first time this season with a win and in the absence of current Number One Ugo Coussaud. At the Kaskáda Golf Challenge, the 28-year-old secured a maiden Challenge Tour win, and with a tied second place finish at last week’s Open de Portugal at Royal Óbidos, he’s in fine form.

Local boy


Joel Girrbach started the season in red-hot form, climbing as high as 13th in the Rankings after finishing tied second at The Challenge presented by KGA in India. Despite struggling to find that same form during the middle of the season, he looks to be trending in the right direction with four events to go having made each of the last four cuts on the Challenge Tour. He also has previous in this event. Back in 2017 when the Swiss Challenge presented by ASG was played at Golf Sempach, he claimed a first win on the Challenge Tour in front of friends and family.

The outsider

Félix Mory currently sits in 42nd place in the Road to Mallorca Rankings, with the Frenchman coming into this event after equalling his best result of the season at the Open de Portugal at Royal Óbidos last week. There he finished tied fourth following rounds of 69-68-68-72, one of four top ten finishes this year. He’s also familiar with the setup at Golf Saint Apollinaire having finished in a share of 13th here last year. A return to the winner’s circle this week – he won the Dormy Open back in 2021 – would see the 29-year-old take a giant leap towards securing promotion to the DP World Tour.
