South Africa’s Dylan Frittelli, 27, won his debut European Tour title after registering a one-shot victory over England’s David Horsey, Finland’s Mikko Korhonen and his fellow South African Jbe Kruger at Lyoness Open (also known as Austrian Open).
Carding six birdies and one bogey for a final round of five-under-par 67, Frittelli emerged on top with 12 under-par.
“I’m really happy with the way the week went — super stoked to get my first win on the European Tour — I think it’s been a long time coming and I am glad to be inside the winner’s circle,” said an elated Frittelli.
Sitting 17th in the Race to Dubai, the win boosts his chances of qualifying for this month’s British Open at Royal Birkdale.
“Hopefully I get into The Open with this performance and it should move me up the Race to Dubai and open up some more doors down the road,” he added.
