Englishman Matt Fitzpatrick won the Andalusia Masters by three strokes after a bogey-less 69 final that saw him take advantage of the closing 76 from night leader Laurie Canter.
Canter started off with a three-stroke lead, but doubled the sixth by three and lost strokes on four more holes.
Fitzpatrick, who was three strokes behind at the start of the day, took the lead over Sebastian Soderberg on the 16th.
The Swede then doubled the 17th at Valderrama to end his chances.
Soderberg finished second with Australian Lee Min-Woo while Canter was another shot behind alongside six others including compatriots James Morrison and Robert Rock.
“It’s on the bucket list to win around Valderrama with the history it has. To do it without a bogey on Sunday is also very special, I’m thrilled,” said Fitzpatrick, 27, who was taking part in his first. ordeal since losing all of his matches in Europe’s loss at the Ryder Cup.
“It’s amazing, especially the way I did it – very patient all day, didn’t try to press anything, stuck to our goals and got it right to pierce the putts at the end.
“You can hit half decent shots and be behind a tree and you tear yourself away or you have to maneuver something. It’s a real test and to be patient throughout the 72 holes I’m really happy with the way. my attitude was all week. “
