Golf Ireland has today announced the squad for the French Boys Championship which will be played from April 6th – 10th at Golf de St-Germain, France.
The format of the event begins with a Qualifying Stage which consists of two strokeplay rounds across Thursday (April 6th) & Friday (April 7th). Ties for the last qualifying spot(s) will be decided taking into account the last 18 holes, the last 9, the last 6, the last 3 and the final hole. Should the tie remain – hole by hole going back up.
The squad includes Fionn Dobbin, who earlier this month won an Edge Golf Championships event in Portugal, where he said he was “excited to push on at the French boys”. Dobbin’s fellow Malone GC golfer Matt McClean will be teeing it up in Augusta whilst the squad are in St-Germain. On McClean, Dobbin said “‘it’s definitely very inspirational to see Matt doing so well, winning in America to get into majors. I’ll definitely try follow in his footsteps and try get to the same spot.”
The schedule for the French Boys Championship is as follows:
- Day Three: Saturday, April 8th – Round of 32 & Round of 16
- Day Four: Sunday, April 9th – Quarter-Finals & Semi-Finals
- Day Five: Monday, April 10th – Final (36 holes)
