European Tour - 2018 Rocco Forte Sicilian Open Wrap-Up

The beauty surrounding Verdura Golf Club was the perfect backdrop for a phenomenal golf tournament. In the end, Sweden's Joakim Lagergren claimed his first European Tour victory in a sudden-death playoff over France's Mike Lorenzo-Vera after firing a 3-under 68. Having started the day two back of Lorenzo-Vera, Lagergren went out in 4-under 32 to seize the lead. He would play the back nine in one-over par, and a late birdie by the Frenchman on 17 sent them to extra holes. A birdie on the last sealed the deal for Joakim, who moves into the top-30 of the Race to Dubai standings.

Next week, the European Tour heads to Belguim for an interesting heads-up stroke-play knockout tournament: the Belgian Knockout.
