Fritelli finishes first in Austria
Dylan Frittelli won the Lyoness Open by one stroke on Sunday after shooting an ice-cool 67 to get to 12-under-par for the week.
Frittelli had never won on the European Tour before Sunday but you would never have guessed that if you saw how calmly he closed out the tournament.
The South African was in possession of a two-shot lead with eight holes to play. On 10 he missed a ruler length putt for birdie and one feared he did not have the nerve to secure the title.
However, that was certainly not the case. Fritelli never allowed that poor stroke to affect him at all.
Needing to make par on the tricky par-three-18th to win, Frittelli hit a solid iron shot and two-putted.
All in all, his final round of 67 contained five birdies and only one dropped shot.
Jbe Kruger finished in a three-way tie for second alongside Mikko Korhonen and David Horsey who were all at 11-under-par.
Kruger will be devastated with how he dealt with the closing moments of the tournament.
A nervy swing on 18 saw his ball end-up in a green-side bunker and he was unable to save par from there.
Without that dropped shot, he would have forced a play-off.
