Yannick Paul made a 15-foot birdie putt on the final hole to win his first European Tour title in one shot at the Mallorca Open on Sunday.
Paul, 28, overcame a two-shot deficit through three holes to play at Sonne Muntaner Golf Club. The German had three birdies and four bogeys for a 1-over 72, finishing the tournament at 15 under and claiming his 26th European Tour win.
Marcus Armitage (73) had a two-shot lead with three holes remaining but finished bogey, double-bogey, bogey. Finished tied for 6th.
Paul had consecutive bogeys on Nos. 14 and 15 to take the lead but finally recovered.
“I’m speechless, honestly, I’m so happy,” Paul said. “Today was really tough. My ball hitting was unbelievable all week. I hit it too close on the first couple of holes and I couldn’t do anything. So that was really hard to stay in this time. But luckily none of them were. Other guys were really rough. They worked.”
England’s Paul Waring (66) and Germany’s Nicolai von Delingshausen (69) tied for second on 14th.
Ryan Fox (74) is tied for fourth at 13 under, ahead of Matt Fitzpatrick as he heads into the season finale in second place at the Race to Dubai.
