Levy Wins in Dramatic Play-off
Alexander Levy clinched his fourth European Tour title of his career by beating overnight leader Dylan Frittelli in a play-off at the RMB 20 million Volvo China Open in Haiurou, Beijing.
With Levy in the clubhouse, Frittelli would have won in regulation with a birdie on the last, but a disappointing par by the South African meant the two went back to the par-five 18th for a play-off with Levy taking the title thanks to a birdie four that Frittelli was unable to match.
For Levy, who carded a final round 67 (-5) to Frittelli’s 74 (+2) to finish at 17-under par, it meant a repeat of his 2014
Volvo China Open win making him the first two-time champion in the event’s 23-year history. Spain’s Pablo Larrazabal took third place one shot behind on 16-under.
“It’s fantastic - I’m really happy as the 2014 Volvo China Open was when I got my first win on the tour so the event means a lot to me and I enjoy playing in China,” said Levy.
