Good news comes in small packages and this time it was for none other than Sergio Garcia. After battling with a series of controversies, Sergio Garcia produced a superlative performance to win the 100th edition of the KLM Open. This is his 16th title on the European Tour.

                                                      Sergio Garcia claimed his 16th European title 

 

 

 

He won the KLM Open by one shot after Callum Shinkwin squandered his chance to claim a maiden European Tour title.

 

Garcia and Shinkwin share the lead on 15 under heading into the final round at The International. It was the experienced Spaniard who held his nerve to claim a 16th European Tour title, carding a three-under 69 to finish a stroke clear of 18-year-old Dane Nicolai Hojgaard.

The 2017 Masters champion hit the turn in 35 following a mixed start, with birdies at three of the first four holes but three bogeys on the front nine in Amsterdam.

 

 

India's Shubhankar Sharma finished at Tied 40th while Gaganjeet Bhullar finished at Tied 60th at the 100th edition of the KLM Open.

Englishman Shinkwin finished back in fifth place on 13 under, a double-bogey six at the 10th and bogeys at two of the last three holes proving costly.

Hojgaard signed for a closing 68 to take second place outright, while Matt Wallace was a shot further back after he matched the teenager's round.

 

 

James Morrison was fourth ahead of Shinkwin, who withdrew from his last two European Tour events after being affected by food poisoning followed by a back injury.
