Matthieu Pavon Biography – Matthieu Pavon Wiki
Matthieu Pavon is a French professional golfer who plays on the European Tour. He secured his maiden European Tour victory at the 2023 Open De Espana in Madrid.
Pavon claimed a maiden professional win on the Alps Tour in 2014 and followed up with another in 2015, the same year he earned a Challenge Tour card by reaching the final stage of the DP World Tour Qualifying School.
His single season on the Challenge Tour saw him finish sixth on the Road to Mallorca with the help of those second-places and since then, he has finished in the top 100 on the Race to Dubai Rankings in Partnership with Rolex in every year barring one, Irish Golfer reported.
The Frenchman earned a European Tour card by finishing sixth in the 2016 Challenge Tour Rankings after an outstanding maiden season on the second tier tour. He enjoyed the best week of his career when he finished third in the 2017 Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open. As a result, he secured his European Tour playing rights for the following season.
Maiden European Tour Victory
He secured his maiden European Tour title in his 185th start with a four-shot wire-to-wire victory at the 2023 Open De Espana in Madrid. The Frenchman arrived at Club de Campo Villa de Madrid with three runner-up finishes on the both the European Challenge and DP World Tours but had never won a European Tour group event despite being an incredibly consistent performer over eight seasons.
South African’s Zander Lombard carded a bogey-free 64 to finish as the nearest challenger, one clear of England’s Nathan Kimsey and two ahead of German Marcel Siem and Paraguay’s Fabrizio Zanotti.
“That was a very long wait. Seven years on tour and I didn’t have a win yet. But it really was worth it,” said a tearful Pavon, who carded only three bogeys all week after signing for a 64, in his post-round interview.
“A part of my heart is here in Spain for sure. My grandfather was from here and lived in France because of Franco. I really thought about him on the course today and it was really hard to keep the tears inside, now I can let them go a little bit.”
He added: “That was a long wait, seven years on the DP World Tour and I didn’t have a win yet, hadn’t won on the Challenge Tour before so that was a long wait but it really was worth it.
“We really stayed in the present moment and really focused: we tried to move on hole after hole, tried to hit fairways, tried to hit greens, make putts and managing my emotions the last two days was a very big accomplishment for me.”
