France's 451-ranked Wattel wins first Tour title, as Kiradech falters

France's 451-ranked Wattel wins first Tour title, as Kiradech falters”

One shot behind Kiradech Aphibarnrat after 54 holes, Wattel was the steadier of the two players in the final group.

Aphibarnrat sank four birdies on the front nine, but then missed a string of opportunities to create an even more handsome lead.

Wattel maintained his lead going into the final hole where the nerves began to show for Aphibarnrat, who could only manage another double bogey to finish on 73.

The Frenchman teed it up on the last with a one-shot lead and opted for a conservative approach that ultimately paid dividends, but only after Aphibarnrat's attempt at being bold backfired.

Padraig Harrington, who was playing with Dunne, finished his round on one under par and is in a tie for 54th.

"I came to this tournament, I was playing poorly to be honest", said the world number 451.

"I just tried to play my own game and I made some good putts". "Last week I struggled with my game".

Connolly earned his best finish on the European Tour as he matched his third-round 66 with his sixth birdie of the day at the last, while Eddie Pepperell birdied three of the last four holes to cap a brilliant 65 which elevated him into a share of third place.

Meanwhile, Lee Westwood remains in contention for a first European Tour title since 2014 after a third-round 67 left him three behind Aphibarnrat.

The rain-affected second round had to be completed on Saturday morning and by the midway point, Stalter shared the lead with Joakim Lagergren, who finished the day level with Westwood and Sebastian Heisele.
