A little disappointed that he failed to cause Antoine Rozner more trouble in the last group of the 4th round of the Afrasia Bank Mauritius Open, Julien Brun acknowledges the superiority of his opponent of the day.
With this third place, Olivier Léglise’s pupil is one step closer to his first success.
Julien Brun, statements
«Today, Antoine, for me, he was untouchable. Afterwards, I regret a bit just because I didn’t manage to finish second.
But clearly he was going too far to go for 19 next. She ended up far from where I started. Then it was even better today, I got into the game better, I drove better. On the other hand, I had problems with the iron.
I missed a lot of mid-range putts. But I held on and finished well to save third place at the end. So it’s good. Yes, it’s always good, it’s my second. Third is my best result in my career, so I’m satisfied.
Again it was complicated against Antoine who made a huge sequence between 7 and 9. He made eagle, birdie, birdie for birdie in the 5 more before. So immediately he created a big, big gap. And hey, he doesn’t make a lot of mistakes, he has experience in big games.
So there you have it, it’s a notch up at the moment, I have to work to catch up with that.» The Republic of Mauritius, also known in Italian as Maurizio, is an island state in Africa; it is located in the southwest of the Indian Ocean 550 km east of Madagascar.
In addition to the main island of the same name, it also includes the islands of Agalega, Cargados Carajos and Rodrigues. Mauritius is geographically part of the Mascarene Islands archipelago, which also includes the French overseas territory of Réunion, some 200 km to the southwest.
Mauritius has no official language; however, being a former colony of the United Kingdom, from which it became independent in 1968, the language used in parliamentary acts is English, although the most widely spoken is Mauritian Creole, largely based on French with English influences , South African and Indian.
Instead, just under 4% of the population is purely French-speaking. There is no state religion, but the most practiced is Hinduism, with more than half of the population, up to about 70% of Indian origin descended from workers sent there under the British empire in debt bondage. It is the only African country with a Hindu majority.
