Lismore golfer takes out biggest win yet in Hong Kong

LISMORE golfer Sam Brazel has won the Hong Kong Open.

Mr Brazel took out the competition at the last moment, before then having been neck and neck with Rafa Cabrera Bello as joint overnight leaders locked on 12-under at the perilous par-four 18th at Fanling.

Spanish Ryder Cup player Cabrera Bello missed a long downhill putt by inches, leaving 480th-ranked Brazel to roll in an eight-foot birdie to secure his first European Tour win and by far the biggest title of his career, report Eurosport.

The 37-year-old journeyman's final round of 68 left him with a 13-under total of 267.

Australia's Andrew Dodt and Briton Tommy Fleetwood were joint third on 11-under, with U.S. Masters champion Danny Willett finishing sixth two further strokes behind.
