England’s Marcus Armitage managed a superb score of seven below par 65 to win his first European Tour title at the European Open in Hamburg.
The 33-year-old netted six birdies and an eagle to complete an eight-under, two strokes ahead of four players, including compatriot Matthew Southgate.
Overnight co-leader Southgate recorded three birdies and two bogeys in his 71s.
Defending champion Paul Casey finished sixth with Scotland’s David Law a shot further with three under.
The tournament has been reduced to 54 holes due to quarantine issues for UK players, caddies and staff.
Armitage started day four with the lead, but quickly moved in the right direction with two birdies in his first three holes before scoring 80 yards for an eagle in the seventh par four.
Four more birdies in the six-hole gap between ninth and 14th propelled him into a four-stroke lead, although a missed shot in the 16th by five gave the chasing group some hope.
Southgate birdied on the 15th, but his quest for a first tour title ended when he found water with his tee shot on the last.
Dutchman Darius van Driel needed to tie the 18th by five to force a play-off, but could only manage a par after deciding to pull out as Armitage celebrated an emotional victory.
