The first edition of this new format on the European Tour was met with great anticipation, and the fans were not disappointed. In the finals, Spain's Adrian Otaegui defeated Frenchman Benjamin Hébert in the last nine-hole match of the tournament. The week started with 144 participants, and after 36 holes, 64 players would advance to the knockout bracket. The winner would need to navigate a total of six 9-hole stroke play matches, and Otaequi was stellar throughout the week, winning his final match by two strokes.
This is the Spaniard’s second career win, and the victory comes after a runner-up finish. He moves into 14th place in the Race to Dubai standings.
Next week, the European Tour hosts one of its biggest tournaments of the year: the BMW PGA Championship in Surrey, England.
