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.
