Jorge Campillo won the Trophee Hassan II by two shots to secure his first win on the European Tour at the 229th attempt.
The 32-year-old Spaniard had showed signs that he was ready to end his drought with two second places and a third spot in his last four tournament appearances.
And, despite boasting a healthy lead going into Sunday’s final round at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam in Morocco, Campillo appeared to be feeling the pressure when he bogeyed two of his first three holes.
However, he composed himself and picked up birdies at the eighth, 11th, 16th and 17th holes to finish with a two-under-par 71 and nine under for the tournament, two clear of American duo Sean Crocker and Julian Suri, and South African Erik van Rooyen. Afterwards, Campillo told the European Tour website: “It’s been a long road. “I’m grateful, but it’s been way too long.
Way too many hours of work since I was a boy to today. I’m just proud that I can say I’m a winner on the European Tour. “I just love the game, I love competing.
Most people say, maybe I’m not a winner, but I was when I was an amateur.
It was a matter of time, I think I proved it today. “I made so many promises that I have to do after I win that I might have to take a few weeks off! “It was tough, I didn’t have my A game.
I was missing shots off the tee but I putted great. I hit some great shots coming in and I’m proud. I’m proud of the way I finished. I finished today like a champion.”11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH. The content of this ebook will propel you above your competition. DOWNLOAD NOW!!!
