Mauritius Open: Romain Langasque
Finished T3 at this course two years ago, a rare bright spot during a horrible run. A much better and more consistent player now who has been achieving good results in a much higher grade.
The Mauritius Open isn’t a particularly strong event, not helped by where it sits in the calendar but it’s hard to envisage a big outsider winning given the lack of quality down the field.
Romain Langasque might be too short for some people given he’s only won once in 110 starts but he’s got current form, course form and the potential to improve.
The Mauritius Open alternates between two host courses and this year its the turn of Heritage GC. It won’t have escaped the attentions of the layers that Langasque finished third here two years ago but what is less apparent was how badly he had been playing in the lead up; he’s made one of only ten cuts coming into the tournament.
The Frenchman returns a much better and more consistent player. He arrives on the back of results that read 18-46-9-30-40 but these were high quality events like the Tour Championship and HSBC Champions.
Langasque is one of the best ball-strikers on tour which is why he probably enjoyed his time at Heritage GC, he also doesn’t mind the wind and finished T23 at the Four Seasons GC Mauritius twelve months ago. He is a winner in waiting and with so much in his favour this looks one of his best chances of the nascent new season.
