Pablo Larrazabal, results

The Iberian success was completed by the second place of Adrian Otaegui with 277 (-11), while the South African Deon Germishuys and the Dane Rasmus Hojgaard occupied the third position with 278 (-10).

In fifth with 279 (-9) the Pole Adrian Meronk, the New Zealander Daniel Hillier and the Thai Kiradech Aphibarnrat and in eighth with 281 (-7) the Malaysian Gavin Green, the Dutch Rowin Caron and the Scots Ewen Ferguson and Grant Forrest.

Larrazabal, 40 years old from Barcelona at his 409th presence on the circuit, leader after the third round, had problems on the first nine holes (two birdies, a bogey, a double bogey) and his primacy was questioned by Germishuys, but with four birdie in the return for the partial of 69 (-3) the Iberian put things back in order, while the too regular South African in the final eleven holes (11 par) also lost second place (69, -3, four birdies , a bogey) Otaegui's prerogative with a final birdie (70, -2, three birdies, a bogey).

Filippo Celli's result was born from a very generous and decisive race after a start from 120th place with a 75 (+3). He avoided the cut by climbing 79 steps up the standings in the second lap, then another twenty in the third to finish close to the top ten with a 70 (-2) thanks to five birdies and three bogeys.

Instead, Renato Paratore gave way, 39th with 286 (68 68 74 76, -2), after being second in the middle of the match and penalized by two partials over par to close, and finished 48th with 287 (68 74 73 72, -1) Edoardo Molinari, vice captain of Team Europe at the next Ryder Cup (September 29-October 1, Marco Simone Golf & Country Club, Guidonia Montecelio, Rome).

Guido Migliozzi did not pass the cut, 151st with 157 (76 81, +13). The winner received a check for €316,649 out of a prize pool of around €1,850,000 ($2,000,000 the official figure).
