RSM present a statistical look back at Guido’s Migliozzi’s debut European Tour win at the Magical Kenya Open presented by Absa.
The Italian, who became a European Tour member for the first time last year after progressing through Qualifying School, started the day in a tie for the lead with Spain’s Adri Arnaus, and the pair exchanged blows throughout the final round before Migliozzi won by one shot.
Although Migliozzi arrived in Kenya a three-time winner on the Alps Tour, he had never contended on the European Tour, and became the seventh first-time winner this season after Aaron Rai, Kurt Kitayama, Bryson DeChambeau, David Law, Ryan Fox and Justin Harding.
Of those first-time winners, Migliozzi won a title in the second fewest starts….
Migliozzi’s victory was the 27th by an Italian on the European Tour, and was the first by his country since Andrea Pavan triumphed at the D+D REAL Czech Masters in August last year.
He also continued his nation’s fine recent record in Kenya….
Throughout the week Migliozzi excelled in many facets of him game. The rookie gained 15.7 strokes tee-to-green on the field, more than any other player, and 7.3 strokes on the field through his driving distance – the second most by any player. Migliozzi also gained 7.0 strokes on the field through his approach play – the third most by any player.
Migliozzi also was right at the front of the pack when it came to Greens In Regulation with 69% – the fourth most by any player – and birdies or better with 23, which was the third most by any player.
A fine win by a fine young player indeed.
