MILAN – Tyrrell Hatton capped a final round of 65 by sinking a superb birdie putt on the last hole to win the Italian Open and claim back-to-back European Tour titles on Sunday.
The tournament looked to be set for a three-way playoff as Hatton came to the final hole level on 20-under-par with leaders Ross Fisher and Kiradech Aphibarnrat, who had already completed their rounds.
Instead, the 26-year-old Englishman calmly holed a birdie putt from around 15 feet to finish on 21-under, and add to the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship he won at St Andrews the week before.
Fisher and Aphibarnrat took second place, while Matt Wallace, who began the day with a two-stroke lead, was fourth on 19-under after a final round of 69.
