Jean-Francois Remesy

Thirty-five years after France last celebrated a home winner of the Open de France, Remesy delighted the record crowds with a magnificent seven-shot victory over the Australian left-handers Richard Green and Nick O'Hern at Le Golf National in 2004. The victory was made all the sweeter as Jean Garaialde, the last Frenchman to win the oldest of the continental Opens in 1969, was there at the prize presentation to hand the trophy to Remesy, who declared that there is no bigger tournament outside the Majors for a Frenchman to win.
If that was not good enough, he repeated the feat the following year when he successfully defended the title after a thrilling duel with compatriot Jean Van de Velde, emerging victorious after the first hole of a sudden-death playoff. After 12 consecutive visits to The European Tour Qualifying School, his patience and perseverance were finally rewarded when he won the 1999 Estoril Open. The 1985 French Amateur Champion was on the brink of giving the game up after once again failing to gain a card in 1998 but visits to a sports psychologist over the winter persuaded him otherwise.
Played full time on the European Tour between 1997 and 2008, played in 309 events, and made 165 cuts. He had 21 top-10 finishes with three wins, three runner-ups, and one third. He earned a career total of euro3,950,679.
