PARIS (AP) — Marco Florioli had a 6-under 65 and Pietro Bovari added a 68 to steer Italy to a one-shot victory over Sweden and its first gold medal within the World Beginner Staff Championship.
Italy completed at 31-under 541 within the format wherein the highest two scores from every four-man workforce rely. Sweden gained the silver medal, whereas the US completed 4 behind and gained the bronze.
Florioli was the primary participant out for Italy and the 17-year-old performed bogey-free at Le Golf Nationwide. He chipped in for birdie on the 14th and closed with 4 pars on the powerful ending stretch.
Bovari, who performs at Virginia, holed a 70-foot eagle putt on the par-5 14th. Italy didn’t want the 70 from Filippo Celli, the low newbie within the British Open at St. Andrews.
