Dennis Küpper wins the Golf & Country Club Christnach Classic.

He had to be patient until the third to last tournament of the EPD Tour 2011: Dennis Küpper won the Golf & Country Club Christnach Classic on Wednesday afternoon and thus celebrated his first win of the season. The player from Krefeld prevailed with 15 under par (68, 62, 65) and thus four strokes ahead of the Dane Christian Baunsoe (69, 64, 66). Third place at the EPD Tour premiere in Luxembourg went to Sebastian Buhl from Lower Bavaria (66, 68, 66 / -10).

Emotional roller coaster for Dennis Küpper in Luxembourg

With a strong 62 (course record!) he took the lead on the second day. Among other things, the 26-year-old managed an eagle on the 560-meter long hole five (par 5). It was precisely this hole that became his undoing on the day of the final: “Everything went wrong there. The tee landed in the forest, then I had to chip first, the ball was then stuck in the bunker, and then it was out of bounds, ”said Küpper. In this respect, the 8 was even still good. Küpper: “I was actually already gone, but then back again. I managed to really motivate myself and fight again.”

With great success. How strong Küpper actually was on the final day, he proved on lanes 6 to 13: On these, he took nine strokes from his flight partner and pursuer, the Finn Janne Kaske, and scored seven birdies on his scorecard.

Küpper, who had to put on his rain pants on the 14th after a lot of sunshine, brought the lead home safely, received a prize of 5000 euros, and was happy about his first success of the season. In the ranking list, the player from Krefeld moved up to 8th place and has every chance of making it into the top five.

Küpper: “I’ll attack; I want to go straight to the Challenge Tour.”

Tournament director Peter Zäh was also satisfied with the conditions at the first EPD Tour event in Luxembourg: “The course is short, but very tight, which required precise play from the participants.” About Küpper’s mishap and subsequent return to the top, he said: “He did it like a real champion.” The EPD Tour is now taking a ten-day break before the Hardenberg GolfResort Prize in Göttingen is played from September 4th to 6th will be – the penultimate tournament of the 2011 season. Four weeks later, from October 1st to 3rd, the big tour final is on the schedule with the Fulda EPD Tour Championship.
