Kieran was taking part in the Grand Prix et Challenge, International De la Ville D’anglet et Chiberta Cup et Challenge Cup over the 5-8 July 2018. With an international field on show from France, Spain, England, Kieran, who was one of two Scots to take part, can be very proud for his performance and his second place finish.
With scores of 67,67,67 & 73 I think Kieran must feel this may have been an opportunity missed. Quoting him from his Twitter account ” Gutted not to have got the job done this week in France, just a few poor decisions in the last round cost me. Big Thanks to Scottish Golf for the experience, was a great week”
Congratulations in any case for a good second place and this can only bode well for him as the season progresses. Kieran is pictured here with the overall winner, Antoine Aubion of Biarritz (centre) and David Ravetto of RCF La Boulie who finished joint second with Kieran.
