Jaidee wins French title
Thai veteran Thongchai Jaidee won the Open de France title in Paris by four strokes over the weekend to win his eighth European Tour title.
The 46-year-old finished at 11-under-par after firing a final round 68 for a total of 273, which included four birdies and a bogey at the final hole with the win already in the bag.
In second place was Italian Francesco Molinari at seven-under after a final round 66 that included seven birdies and dropped shots on the ninth and 10th for a total of 277.
Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy's challenge faded when he fired a 71 to finish third on six-under with a birdie at the par-five 14th and a bogey at the third on the front nine. A shot further back was Rafael Cabrera-Bello of Spain, who shot a 67.
In an interview after his win, Jaidee said he was thrilled to have won in front of his family.
"I'm very happy to have my family here this week together and also really happy to win the tournament here," said Jaidee.
"I know the golf course is fantastic. I've been here many, many years and I think especially this week, it's a special week for me to win the tournament out here.
"Sometimes you need one perfect week. You can't do well every week. This week is my perfect week because I didn't miss much. Anything I missed, I found I could lay up and make a good shot and make par and that's it."
In a tie for fifth place, a shot back were, German Martin Kaymer, Andy Sullivan of England and South African Brandon Stone.
Defending champion Bernd Wiesberger carded a final-round 75 to end 10 strokes off the pace alongside Lee Westwood.
