Gouveia rules Rome after play-off Victory

Sunday, October 5, 2014

Ricardo Gouveia claimed his maiden European Challenge Tour title in dramatic fashion as the Portuguese defeated Germany’s Florian Fritsch in the third play-off hole to win the EMC Golf Challenge Open in just his seventh event as a professional.

The 23 year old only turned professional in July before making his debut in the paid ranks at the D+D REAL Slovakia Challenge, after a glittering amateur career in the American collegiate ranks where he studied at the University of Central Florida.

“I cannot even describe how good I feel right now,” said Gouveia, who moved to 49th in the Challenge Tour Rankings from 167th.

Congratulations Ricardo from all at Hambric Sports. We are very proud of you!
