Antoine Rozner has confirmed that he will defend his AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open title when this Sunshine Tour and DP World Tour co-sanctioned tournament is played at the spectacular new La Réserve Golf Links from 14-17 December.
The Frenchman said he was looking forward to returning to a tournament where he has an incredible record of a victory and runner-up finish in the last two editions.
“I can’t wait to return to Mauritius and try to defend my title. It was such an amazing week and was the perfect end to the year. I’m really excited to head back there in December,” Rozner said.
His 2022 triumph saw him win by a commanding five strokes at the Mont Choisy Le Golf course to claim the largest margin of victory in the tournament’s history.
It was Rozner’s third DP World Tour victory of his career and he will look to replicate that form as he seeks to become the first professional to successfully defend his AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open title.
Rozner said he is also looking forward to playing the new host course of La Réserve Golf Links, which was co-designed by Louis Oosthuizen and Peter Matkovich with a vision to be ranked in the top 100 golf courses of the world
“The course is incredible and Mauritius itself is such a fantastic place to visit, especially at that time of year,” said Rozner.
