I already know the winners and the runner up, but I don’t know player’s name for the first, second and third rounds.

I think all anyone could do is use search engines, which I imagine you've already done.

Maybe a library in France has some microfilm of the papers from back then…?

Thanks for your answers

I started with the french federation, but they have nothing at all about these events.

I used old newspapers through "archives internet sites", it was enough after 1919, but iI have found notihng before 1914.

At this time golf was not very popular in France.

The French International Amateur Championship was palyed mainly by british players, it is the reasonwhile, it is possible to find results in british newspapers. It is the way used by "french historian of golf". But it is difficult for me to fond alone this information, it is the reasonwhile I need your help.

I Have already found the winners and runner up, see below

1904

La Boulie

H-G Beeche

9 et 7

J. Owerbury

1905

La Boulie

A. H Grosfield

7 et 5

Sir Edgar Vinvent

1906

La Boulie

R.G Graham

1907

Looks like matchplay, but an '11 et 10' is an unlikely score...:-\
