Zan­otti En­joys Sur­prise Win

HK Golfer - - Asia Focus -

Paraguay’s Fabrizio Zan­otti pro­duced a fab­u­lous come­from-be­hind vic­tory at the May­bank Cham­pi­onship, thanks to a glo­ri­ous fi­nal hole ea­gle for a clos­ing round of nine-un­der­par 63. Start­ing the fi­nal day six shots back of leader Danny Wil­lett, the 33-year-old Zan­otti won the US$3 mil­lion co­sanc­tioned tour­na­ment by one shot ahead of 2014 Asian Tour Or­der of Merit win­ner David Lipsky fol­low­ing a thrilling con­clu­sion at the Sau­jana Golf and Coun­try Club. No fewer than five play­ers, in­clud­ing Lipsky, Wil­lett, Bernd Wies­berger and Alexan­der Levy, held at least a share of the lead dur­ing a fre­netic fi­nal round be­fore Zan­otti, whose other tri­umph on the Euro­pean Tour was the 2014 BMW In­ter­na­tional Open. He signed off the week on 19-un­der-par 269 and earned US$500,000.
