SEVILLE, Spain – Italian Ryder Cup player Francesco Molinari won the Spanish Open here on Sunday, turning a four-stroke deficit into a three-shot win in stunning fashion.

Overnight leader Simon Dyson of England slumped to a 76 despite opening the final round with two birdies, while Molinari had a tournament-best of 65.

Seven birdies in the first 14 holes and then four closing pars were enough to see the 29-year-old home.

Joint second were Dane Soren Kjeldsen and Spaniards Pablo Larrazabal and Alejandro Canizares, while Dyson fell all the way to joint 12th. – Sapa-AFP
