El gibraltareño Sebastián Desoisa gana el Campeonato de España sub-18 masculino

 



El Campeonato de España Sub 18 Masculino, marcado por las inclemencias meteorológicas, ha sido ganado finalmente por el jugador gibraltareño adscrito a la Real Federación Andaluza de Golf, Sebastian Desoisa.


El golfista de La Roca firmó una tarjeta de 72 golpes (+1) en la tercera y definitiva jornada para un total de 213 golpes, al par del campo, dos golpes menos que José Antonio Sintes, segundo clasificado.


Según el reglamento de la competición, sólo un golfista con nacionalidad española puede hacerse con el título, de manera que el nuevo Campeón de España es el jugador canario, añadiendo un título más a su excelente currículo.


José Antonio Sintes firmó una última vuelta de 74 golpes (+3) para un total de 215 golpes, dos sobre el par del campo, mientras que Santiago Juesas completó el podio tras un resultado de 78 golpes (+7) y un global de 217golpes (+4).


Con este título, José Antonio Sintes demuestra su gran estado de forma, ya que a finales del mes de febrero se hizo con el triunfo en el Red Sea Little Venice del Alps Tour, un torneo profesional a pesar de su todavía condición de amateur.


La trayectoria del jugador insular en las últimas temporadas está siendo claramente ascendente, como indican los tres triunfos conseguidos en 2023 en la Copa de Andalucía, el Campeonato de Madrid y la Copa Nacional Puerta de Hierro.


El cuadro de honor de este Campeonato de España Sub 18 Masculino 2024 se ha completado con los ganadores ex-aequo en categoría Sub 16, Raúl Gómez y Gonzalo Ramos, ambos con un resultado total de 218 golpes (+5).


Este Campeonato de España Sub 18 Masculino es valedero para el Ranking Mundial (WAGR) y para los Rankings Nacionales Sub 18 y Cadete.



**Resultado Finales


1. Sebastian Desoisa (71, 70, 72) 213 golpes

DUCA DEL COSMA UNVEILS BOLD SS24 RANGE THAT DARES TO BE DIFFERENT

                       


 

Luxury golf fashion brand Duca del Cosma is today unveiling its bold SS24 golf shoe range headlined by a pioneering lightweight outsole technology and a host of vibrant new designs that dare to be different from other models on the market.

 

The functional Airplay 15 outsole is applied to four new styles that enable golfers to enjoy out-of-the-box comfort and game-enhancing performance by using the most premium materials in a smart sole design. Crafted to reduce foot fatigue, while maximizing support and stability through a sturdy and lightweight construction, the outsole has been developed and tested in collaboration with brand ambassadors, including DP World Tour star Joost Luiten and LPGA Tour player Kelly Tan.

 

Standout golf shoes across the four distinctive style categories – ‘Pro’, ‘Fashion’, ‘Sporty’ and ‘Classic’ – include the ultra-modern DAVANTI men’s and chic OLIVERA women’s sneaker-style designs; classic DAVINCI men’s style and dazzling AVIVA women’s shoe in a prominent animal print; plus the limited-edition JUBILEE and ALANA styles that are a nod to the brand’s 20-year anniversary. Several award-winning shoes remain in the collection with the addition of striking new colour combinations to elevate the product offering to even greater heights.

 

“This latest range shows exactly why we dare to be different and continue to push the boundaries of modern golf shoe design,” said Dolf Stoffberg, CEO at Duca del Cosma. “These styles really bridge the gap between on and off course wear, while featuring a stunning array of colours and patterns to ensure golfers stand out for all the right reasons,” he added.

 

The Airplay 15 outsole features an advanced dual-component build comprised of a high shock absorption CMEVA midsole for added comfort and flexibility, plus an offset medial toe bumper and traction nubs on the durable outsole unit to deliver optimal performance and uncompromising grip during the golf swing. A strategically positioned heel-strike to the rear of the outsole improves the walking gait and promotes a solid stride.

                                


Further innovations in the SS24 collection include a waterproof sock system with OnSteam® recyclable microfibre technology applied to several shoes, while the breathable ARNEFLEX® insert sole is also manufactured using recycled materials and delivers unrivalled all-day comfort. A total of 11 outsole technologies across four different Duca Fit Systems ensures there is a golf shoe in the range to fit all foot types and sizes.

 

The DAVANTI shoe incorporates the super technical Airplay 15 outsole to offer top golf shoe performance and ultimate versatility. Offering a contemporary look, it can be worn on the course as well as in everyday life and is made using a combination of premium Nappa leather and abrasion resistant onDuraÒ Nilo technical nylon in contrasting colours to make a strong statement. The waterproof construction delivers protection in wet conditions, while the offset toe bumper provides extra durability on areas most prone to wear. The top-quality design is available in three striking colourways – Light Blue, Green/Grey and Marina.

The sophisticated DAVINCI shoe enhances the brand’s popular classic golf shoe line-up and provides a truly luxurious appearance for those seeking an extra special design to confidently stride down the fairways. The waterproof shoe features an upper crafted from embossed full-grain leather to offer incredible comfort straight out of the box and is offered in White and Light Blue with a colourful Airplay 11 outsole to catch the eye.

 

The award-winning POSITANO shoe is now available in two new vivid colour combinations – White/Blue and White/Blue/Red. The award-winning waterproof shoe features the ultra-lightweight D-EvaÒ outsole offering flexibility to ensure golfers can enjoy the walk in a lighter shoe without sacrificing crucial foot support.

 

The limited-edition men’s JUBILEE and women’s ALANA shoes have been designed to mark the brand’s 20-year anniversary and deliver a superb individual look. Both shoes incorporate a predominantly Red and White colour scheme and the new Airplay 15 outsole, while the JUBILEE features a distinctive silver emblem to the side of the shoe for an extra special look.

 

Among the other popular shoes in the men’s collection for 2024 are the GIRONA in three colours; sporty FLYER and GIORDANO shoes; plus the classic DANDY and CHURCHILL styles. The award-winning BERNARDO and ORLANDO pro spiked designs are carried forward.

 

The ultra-modern OLIVERA sneaker style shoe spearheads the women’s offering with its advanced design and supremely fashionable appearance. Crafted using various forms of premium Nappa leather, the stylish shoe really stands out from the crowd, especially in the Orchid/Pink colourway, which has been a best-selling colourway amongst stockists.

 

The dazzling AVIVA shoe with its prominent animal print is sure to be popular with women golfers seeking a luxurious pair of golf shoes this season. The bold design offers best-in-class support via a heightened heel on the advanced Airplay 17 outsole and features a lightweight and breathable upper to ensure feet remain cool and dry all day long. For every pair sold, the brand will donate money to the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre to help save the critically endangered King Cheetah that inspired the pattern on the trendy shoe’s upper.

                  


Designed with fashion-conscious golfers in mind, the ALESI features an on-trend jacquard print with contrasting details to offer a supremely elegant look and feel. Available in two fashionable colours, the style incorporates the lightweight Airplay 17 outsole with strategically positioned traction points for a seamless combination of function and fit.

 

Other fashion-forward shoes in the women’s collection are the award-winning SERENA, BELLEZZA and ALEXA styles, plus the chic KING CHEETAH and BOREAL designs in two standout colours. The SABINA and AVANTI pro spiked models are carried forward.

Galvin Green names Tour player line-up for 2024 season

                    


Premium hi-tech golf apparel brand Galvin Green has named its global Tour player line-up headlined by Swedish star Alexander Björk on the PGA TOUR and Englishman Jordan Smith leading the brand’s presence on the DP World Tour.

 

Having achieved an impressive stroke average of 69.59 across the DP World Tour calendar in 2023, Björk is set to play most of his golf on the flagship U.S. Tour following a career best season that saw him finish 11th in the Race to Dubai rankings to earn a sought-after PGA TOUR card.

 

Hot off the back of a T2 finish at the Jonnson Workwear Open in South Africa, Jordan Smith will be seen wearing Galvin Green garments for another year after a strong showing on the DP World Tour in 2023, where he achieved four top 10s, plus a T20 and T41 finish at the 123rd U.S. Open and 151st Open Championship respectively.

 

“We’re so pleased that Alexander earned his PGA TOUR card which was fully deserved after a superb season of consistent golf,” said Conor Petters, Galvin Green Global Tour Manager. “It was also great to see Jordan come some close on Sunday after being in contention so often during the course of last year,” he added.

 

Björk and Smith are joined by five other Tour players that will wear Galvin Green outfits in 2024. They include fellow Englishman Laurie Canter wearing the brand’s clothing during tournaments on LIV Golf as a wildcard player and the DP World Tour. Former Walker Cup star Jake Bolton is one of the newest recruits to wear the latest men’s range featuring products such as the 100% waterproof and windproof ARMSTRONG GORE-TEX Paclite® jacket in a striking three tone design, plus the super breathable MO shirt in moisture wicking VENTIL8™ PLUS fabric with a standout cross-body gradient print across the chest.

 

Alexandra Swayne, 23, will wear the brand’s vibrant women’s styles for a second successive season having made her Ladies European Tour debut last year, while 29-year-old Danish Nanna Koerstz Madsen joins the line-up alongside Corinne Viden on the LET circuit.

 

“We are delighted to continue supporting our new and established Tour players and believe each member of Team Galvin Green will prove to be valuable brand ambassadors in front of global audiences in 2024,” added Petters.
