France to the fore

World Amateur Golf Team Champions France also emerged victorious at the European equivalent held on the Oceânico Victoria course in Vilamoura at the weekend.

Title holders England did not make it into the closing stages of the competition this time as Switzerland provided the opposition for the French in the final.

Elsewhere, Algarve golfer and European Challenge Tour leader Ricardo Santos continued in great form in Italy.

The 28-year-old played a masterful 65, five under par, third round on the difficult Acaya course in Lecce to recover from a bad second day effort and set up a credible sixth place finish behind winner Jamie Moul from England.
