Bourdy’s birdies win the ISPS Handa Wales Open
Gregory Bourdy finished with three successive birdies on one of the toughest closing stretches on the European Tour to claim victory at the ISPS Handa Wales Open.
Bourdy was tied with third round leader Peter Uihlein when he embarked on his improbable run for home by draining a 50-footer from just off the green on the tough, par-four 16th.
He holed from 15 feet at the par-three 17th before sinking another outrageous putt from 10 yards in front of packed galleries on the final green to complete a final round of four-under-par 67.
Playing in the group behind, Uihlein hung in gamely with a monster putt of his own for birdie on the 17th but could not find the hole from half the distance on the last to force a play-off.
“This is my fourth European Tour win but I’m so proud to win this trophy on this great golf course,” said the 31-year-old Frenchman.
“That is a very tough finish especially with this wind, it’s one of the toughest we play on tour.
“It’s always a great pleasure for all the players to play this golf course and stay in this hotel. Walking down this fairway and onto this green, with this setting, is always an amazing experience and this is one of the best of my life.”
