Tyrrell Hatton made a daring birdie at the last to win the Italian Open and secure back-to-back European Tour titles.
Hatton, who successfully defended his Alfred Dunhill Links Championship title last week, looked too far back to challenge when Ross Fisher and Kiradech Aphibarnrat attacked the Golf Club Milano course and got significant rewards for their bravery in the form of birdies.
Those two shared the clubhouse-lead on 20 under at the conclusion of their rounds.
But Hatton suddenly found his range with the putter and boxed four consecutive birdies from the 12th and, after two cast-iron pars, he clipped a solid second to the heart of the 72nd green and his putt had just enough pace to drop in the left side of the hole.
He claimed victory by a shot from Fisher and Aphibarnrat who finished in a tie for second.
Hatton has now won three times on the European Tour in his career.
