Aguilar claims The Championship title
Felipe Aguilar produced a scintillating back nine to claim The Championship at Laguna National title in Singapore.
Aguilar started the day four shots off the pace and made only two birdies in his opening nine before he stormed his way to victory with a superb performance on the back nine.
The Chilean made six birdies on the last nine, but it was his eagle on the last that took him to 22 under par overall and a one-shot victory over American David Lipsky and Anders Hansen of Denmark.
“Yesterday I thought I had no chance,” Aguilar said.
“Today I said to my caddie on the 17th, after I made a birdie, ‘if we can make a birdie on 18 we can out some pressure on the leader’ and he said ‘what about making a two?’.
“I said to him the way I had been hitting the ball I could well do. It’s a long story but I made two on 18, and what a beautiful way to finish.”
Aguilar came home in 28 to record a 10 under par final round and seal his second victory on the European Tour, with his other success coming in the Enjoy Jakarta Astro Indonesia Open in February 2008.
“It’s been a bit of a drought for six years,” he added.
“I’ve lost a couple of times in play-offs and had a couple of top threes and top fives, but never was able to get the round going on the last day, so it is nice to finally do it.”
