If Thomas Levet was looking for a tough task in trying to win the Alstom French Open for a second consecutive time, he will be particularly well served this year. Indeed, this year the roll call boasts the presence of some of the golfing world’s finest players. Here is an overview: For several years now, Amaury Sport Organisation and the French Federation of Golf have been working hard to improve the appeal of the Alstom French Open and cement its position as one of the major events on the European circuit. They are not lacking in assets to attract the stars of world golf and have them returning season after season. Often mentioned are the excellent level of prize money (more than 3 million euros in 2012), the quality of the Albatros course at the French National Golf Course, future host of the Ryder Cup 2018, as well as the prestige of Paris. The organisers are seeking to capitalise on these advantages whilst pursuing their efforts in fine-tuning the essential other details. The results are more than encouraging. Jean Van de Velde, the new director of the Alstom French Open, and Bruno Rebeuh, liaison officer for the professional golfers and their agents, have travelled the world over the last few weeks to hold discussions with the main international players golf and obtain confirmation of their participation in the tournament. This travel has borne fruit, because, to date, they have been able to announce in particular the presence of Lee Westwood, Martin Kaymer and Justin Rose, the current world number 3, 6 and 10 respectively, as well as Graeme McDowell, Ian Poulter, Francesco Molinari and Paul Casey, all members of the top 50 in the world. Retief Goosen and Darren Clarke, the most recent winner of the British Open, will also be in attendance. Such a line-up is bound to whet the appetite of the crowds, who already came in their masses last year (52,000 spectators during the week), and instantly kick-start ticket bookings. A pass for the 4 days of competition is available for French Federation of Golf members at the special offer price only € 40 until 30th April, then € 45 until 31st May, before increasing to € 50. Day tickets will cost € 25 for federation members and € 35 for non-members, though until 31st May they will be available to non-members at a price of € 30.
