Wildcard for Trophée Hassan II

Race to Rabat

It has been worth performing particularly well in the Pro Golf Tour’s tournaments in Morocco in several respects since the 2015 season. On the one hand, the players lay the foundation in North Africa for their possible promotion to the European Challenge Tour later on. But they also have the chance to win a wildcard for the Trophée Hassan II, the European Tour tournament in Morocco.

In the premiere season of the Race to Rabat in 2015, the German Martin Keskari finished best at the then also eight tournaments of the Pro Golf Tour in Morocco. This year, Hurly Long leads the special competition after 7 of 8 events: With 8393.34 points, the German, currently the No. 1 of the Pro Golf Tour Order of Merit as well, before the final Open Michlifen is clear before the Frenchman Edouard Dubois (7460, 00 points) and Allen John, another player from Germany (7212.00 points).

But after winning a stately 40,000 euros in prize money at the Open Michlifen, and correspondingly as many ranking points and points for the Race to Rabat are distributed, it is still completely undecided which member of the Pro Golf Tour may be present when the European Tour comes back to Morocco this year; the winner of the Open Michlifen receives 6666.67 euros.

From 25 to 28 April, the Trophy Hassan II 2019 will take place on the Red Course of Royal Dar Es Salam in Rabat, and the tournament is endowed with a prize money of 2.5 million euros. More at www.hassan2golftrophy.com.
