Simone wins again. If Marco Simone experienced a bitter waltz, he found a good swing. The former football coach of Berrichon de Châteauroux can devote himself entirely to his passion for golf. He has just successfully participated in the last two competitions organized by the golf club du Val de l’Indre in Villedieu-sur-Indre. Marco Simone, still licensed in Monte Carlo, even got a taste of victory by winning the approach competition. Something to restore morale.
