Bristol golfer Chris Wood sank a 12-foot eagle putt on the final hole to grab his first European Tour title in brilliant fashion today.
Three clear of the field overnight, the 25-year-old fell two behind after a shaky start and with one to play trailed South African George Coetzee and Spanish star Sergio Garcia by a single stroke.
Then came a booming drive on the closing par five, a superb five-iron over the water and the best putt of his life for a 69 and 18 under par total.
It came after 19 top 10 finishes from the player who was fifth in the 2008 Open as an amateur and then third a year later at Turnberry.

Following the announcement that Tom Richardson will step down from his role as Chief Executive at Gloucestershire County Cricket Club after 12 years, Rex Body, Chairman of GCCC paid tribute to him:
"We are very sorry to see Tom go and greatly appreciate everything he has done for us during his time with the Club. Tom’s value to GCCC cannot be overestimated, particularly the work he has done on our Ground Development programme, in at times extremely difficult circumstances."
Gloucestershire County Cricket Club have announced that Chief Executive, Tom Richardson, will leave the club at the beginning of September after 12 years in the post.
I have hugely enjoyed my time at Gloucestershire County Cricket Club and feel privileged to have been involved for so long. Clearly getting started on the development has been a major lift for the club and I am really pleased to have played a full part in that. There is a real buzz about the place at the moment and whilst in some ways it will be sad not to be involved next year it is time for me to move on. However, all that said, there is a lot to achieve in order to be ready for both the season and the opening of the pavilion and I am really looking forward to doing all of that.
