BIO

Romain won the 2015 Amateur Championship at Carnoustie and turned professional in 2016.  He’s had a yo-yo few years bouncing back and forth between the Challenge Tour and European Tour.  After a highly successful 2016 on the Challenge Tour where Romain recorded 10 top 10 finishes he graduated to the European Tour.  Unfortunately, Romain struggled in 2017, missing 17 cuts in 28 appearances before finding his feet again late in 2018 on the Challenge Tour with his maiden win as a pro and 3 other top 5 finishes to graduate back to the European Tour in 2019.

Romain performed better in 2019 on the European Tour, recording four top 6 finishes, but made his maiden European Tour win at the ISPS HANDA Wales Open in August 2020.  Romain cites his upturn in form from late 2018 onwards to a change of coach and management team.

Pressure Performance Analysis

August 2020
Came from 5 shots back in the final round to win the ISPS HANDA Wales Open by 2 shots in extremely windy conditions at Celtic Manor. He shot 65 which was the best round of the day, including a bogey free back 9.

May 2019
Trailed Bernd Wiesberger by three shots going into the final round at the Made In Denmark, matched Bernd's 66 to lose out by 3.

November 2018
Romain trailed by 3 going into the final round at the Ras Al Khaimah Challenge Tour Grand Final.  Shot a more than acceptable 69 to lose out by 3.

September 2018 
Romain came from 2 shots behind as he won his only title at the Hopps Open de Provence. 

Summary
Romain has little experience of leading after 3 rounds and has tended to post his best finishes when coming from off the pace in the final round.  When he has been off the pace he has performed solidly, as was the case in Wales in 2020. Romain's Golf Betting Club Pressure Performance Rating is set at 4 stars.

Trends

Unpredictable 
Interestingly, three of Romain's four top 6 finishes in 2019 came after a missed cut in his previous event so Romain does not need to come into an event in form to contend.  His win in 2020 came after a week off.

Wind Expert

Having won the Amateur Championship on a links course and recorded good results on courses exposed to wind (3rd place Made in Denmark 2019 and 4th place Ras Al Kaminah Challenge Tour Final 2018) it was no surprise Romain's first win came in windy conditions in Wales (he was tipped up by us at 66/1).  Romain himself has acknowledged he likes wind, “I like the wind.  I think it’s going to be really windy so that’s a good point, I want to have these kind of conditions.”

Major and WGC Analysis

Major's
Romain has made the cut in The Open, US Open and The Masters in years gone by but he needs to contend more frequently to be thought of as a Major challenger. He is one to support in the top 40 market in majors going forward.   

With his fondness for links and having won The Amateur Championship, his best shot at a Major in future years is surely The Open Championship.

WGC's
Best finish of 46th at 2019 WGC - HSBC Champions.

Playoff Record

0-1. 

Romain lost his only playoff at the 2016 D+D Real Slovakia Challenge.

Q. 
Four top six finishes for you so far this season. How much are you looking forward to the opportunity tomorrow to go out and win your first European Tour event?
ROMAIN LANGASQUE: You know, I will take it if I won, and I will just be focused on do my best. I'm playing really good since two or three weeks now and I just didn't get the momentum. This week, I'm in a good form, and I think I have a good chance because I'm playing really, really well, and I will do my best tomorrow because I want to win now.
