It all started for Remi Fabre Around the age of 10. It was during an open day at Léry Poses golf course (Eure).

In addition to golf school on Saturday afternoons, two years after joining the club, competitions quickly became part of his new routine. He was then living with his parents in Poses.

Around the age of 15, the teenager was already making his first Norman grand prix at the golf courses of Léry-Poses, Dieppe and Rouen Mont-Saint-Aignan. Thanks to his good results, he was able to be integrated for his last years of high school into a sport-study in the Paris region. Flexible schedules were put in place, and allowed him to train longer to improve his technique.

I could thus see an evolution in my gaming routine.

Thereafter, everything fell into place. Rémi took his first steps in many international competitions, notably in Switzerland, Italy and Belgium.

Doubts, but perseverance

In 2018, the 23-year-old Posien played his first professional tournament on the Alps Tour, a European circuit reserved for good players. Unfortunately, the results were not there.

Rémi began to doubt. Despite the disappointment, he made the decision to train more. In this, he received the help of several people: his trainer Mathieu Lamotte, a former golf professional, but also his physical trainer and his “mental coach”.

Now I have no more stress, I know how to make sense of things, I constantly try to push back my sporting and mental limits.

Eventually, his hard work paid off. His first big victory, he obtained it at the Grand Prix de Sologne, in Millançay (Loir-et-Cher).

It was in 2019. It’s my fondest golf memory.

Then, in 2020, he finished first amateur on the course of Acaya, in Italy, and in fifth place on the Gecko Tour, in Spain. Results that allowed him to abandon his amateur status to necessarily turn professional in 2021.

114th French players

Rémi Fabre then participated in a full season (2021) on the Pro Golf Tour, a European circuit accessible only to very high level players, that is to say the best Europeans. In all, this season cost him €25,000 for 18 tournaments played in one year. An intense rhythm that he knew how to keep. In the end, he wins the 110e place of merit of the Pro Golf Tour (out of all European players participating in the tournament) and ranks 114e in the ranking of French professional players.

To finance his trips, the young golfer can count on the support of his whole family. This is good because his father, his mother and his sisters were all golf players. But it is Rémi Fabre who has the highest level. But, he hopes to find sponsors who could come to his aid before the start of next season, in the coming months.

And if Rémi Fabre does not manage to break into the world of golf “within five or six years”, for financial or sporting reasons, the young man has thought of “a spare wheel”. He is now an apprentice teacher in one of the golf courses in Lille (Nord) and is also completing his teaching diploma at the Center for Resources, Expertise and Sports Performance (CREPS), in Montpellier (Hérault).

I want to put all the chances on my side as a professional.
