A thing unprecedented in Slovakia: a large group of spectators moved behind the playing junk to look for the best view. After three years of existence, the Slovak Championship Open is becoming increasingly popular. This time, the participation of the Slovakian representative Rora Sabbatini has undoubtedly contributed to this. He also took the winning trophy from Penati.During two laps at the Legend course in the prestigious Slovak golf resort Penati near Senica, we also saw Czech visitors among the spectators, the only Slovak Ladies European Tour winner Zuzana Kamasová, several top Slovak golfers, but perhaps even junior Skalica and playground managers. They were attracted not only by this golf holiday, but mainly by the main star of this event – 43-year-old Rory Sabbatini. Czech-Slovak duel However, as it turned out, Rory’s balanced partner until the end was a young Czech professional Ondřej Lieser. Not only did they have the same result after the first day (69 shots), but with the same number of shots (this time 70) they left the island grove of the 18th hole on the final day of the tournament. The winner of the trophy was decided by the repeated play off – again on the 18th hole. Eventually, the more experienced player Sabbatini with South African roots living with his Slovak wife Martin in Florida, who has been playing with Slovak citizenship for Slovakia this season, was better off the exciting fight. Including PGA major tournaments such as the US and British Open. And so the winner of the most prestigious Slovak tournament, the Slovak Championship open to foreign players, appeared after two Czech names – Peter Nič (winner of 2017) and Filip Mrůzek (2018) the name of a Slovak representative and most likely the next year’s Olympic champion R. Sabbatini . At the same time he started without a training round, which he simply did not manage due to the European Tour tournament in Hamburg. At the final discussion with the media did not even hide that he felt tired and it was seen on some not very successful heels, which had to fight until the last moments with the aforementioned Czech. For both days, however, he was supported by his wife, who also gave him a cup of tea instead of an otherwise professional cup of tea, to which he gave leave. On this account, Rory jokingly remarked that at other times she was the boss, but this time he was.
