Golf is a tough game. One day you are playing well and on top, and another day, you may not even make the cut. That’s what happened to Alexander Levy.

The 33-year-old professional golfer from France who lives in California, USA, is facing a career low after missing the cut at DP World Tour Commercial Bank Qatar Masters 2023. The DP World Tour is the same as the European Tour. It has been renamed for branding purposes. Levy lost out on a chance for the next year.

The official handle of DP World Tour on X posted a video of Alexander Levy, where he is speaking about his feelings after the letdown. The post is captioned: “Ranked 125th on the Race to Dubai Rankings, @alexlevygolf needed to make the cut to give himself a chance of retaining his Tour card. He lipped out for an ace at the 17th before lipping out again at the 18th to miss the cut. Golf is hard.”

Alexander Levy confessed about his game of the day, saying, “I gave everything I had today. It’s golf. It’s such a difficult game when it’s not going your way…I have nothing to say. I just gave a hundred percent. It was close to going my way. But it didn’t today…that’s life.”

The interviewer further asked him, “But it’s 16. Tell us about the par 3/17.” He replied, “Yeah, I leap out for holding one. Like I said, I gave everything I had today. I hit the flag on first, got back off the green, and hit the perfect shot on 17. Just leap out for holding one, and on 18, massive leap out on my bed.”

Alexander Levy is the winner of the 2009 French Amateur Championship, and has been playing on the European Tour (DP World Tour) for a long time. However, he will have to miss out next year on the DPWT.

Alexander Levy down but not out!

“You needed that birdie on 18 and you had another ugly lip out,” said the interviewer, asking Levy about his future outlook after the disappointment. “You know, golf can go quick in both ways. I’m just gonna practice and try my best the next few weeks,” said Alexander.

“I know I will play a few tournaments at the start of the year. I will try to get ready for that and we’ll see what happens. But if I give (do) what I did on the last nine holes, and I followed this path, I think good things are going to come,” he said.
