BRILLIANT BORJA CLAIMS SLOVAKIA WIN IN SOME STYLE

Wild celebrations follow Spaniard’s maiden victory

Borja Virto Astudillo earned his debut Challenge Tour title in truly dramatic fashion, chipping in for birdie on the 72nd hole to win the D+D Slovakia Challenge by a single stroke. The Spaniard was level pegging with playing partner Ricardo Gouveia on 16 under par, but denied the Portuguese back-to-back wins after chipping in from just off the 18th green to spark scenes of wild celebration at Penati Golf Resort in Senica, Slovakia. 

With Denmark’s Jeff Winther, playing in the final group, needing an unlikely eagle on the last to join Virto Astudillo on 17 under par, the Spaniard still faced an anxious wait to have his maiden victory confirmed but, after watching Winther make par, he could finally relax for the first time on a tense final day. 

He said: “I normally stay pretty calm on the golf course, but I did the biggest fist-pump of my life when that chip went in on the last. To win your first title is always very special, but to shoot 66 and chip in on the last hole – it doesn’t get much better than that.”
