Second title for Wrag Barn’s Loughrey

Wrag Barn golfer Josh Loughrey has won his second Alps Tour title after topping the leaderboard at the Cidatelle International Trophy in France.

A final round 69 ultimately clinched the title for Loughrey, who had held the outright lead at the half-way point of the four round tournament.

Back to back rounds of 68 gave Loughrey a two-shot lead after 36 holes and he followed that up with a steady third round 70.

That gave him a share of the tournament lead with Holland’s Darius Van Driel on 10 under par with 18 holes to play.

Loughrey and Van Driel both sunk early birdies in their final round but it was the Wrag Barn professional who made the turn in the lead.

While Van Driel went out in level par, Loughrey, who had his brother Ben caddying for him, shot a two under par 34 in his opening nine holes.

Loughrey then kept his cool on the back nine as he shaved another shot off his total while Van Driel remained on level par.

His final score of 13 under par was three clear of Van Driel and saw Loughrey storm to the top of the Alps Tour Order of Merit on 25,306.67 points.

Van Driel’s second place finish means he is now some way behind Loughrey on 20,739.57 points.

As well as the winners’ trophy, Loughrey also picked up a cheque for 6,250 euros.
