John Catlin wins maiden European Tour title at Valderrama

John Catlin held off Martin Kaymer, who bogeyed the last, in a final-round tussle to claim a wire-to-wire victory at the Andalucia Masters and his maiden win on the European Tour.

In a see-saw battle, a bogey for Catlin and birdie for Kaymer at the 12th meant the German hit the front and another crucial moment at the 15th followed, in which the former drained a par putt and the latter dropped a shot to tie the scores.

Harding's hopes ended with a double-bogey at the last, while Kaymer squandered birdie chances from nine feet at the 16th and six feet at the 17th to leave him and Catlin in a share of the lead with one hole to play.

"I think it's still kind of setting in", Catlin told Sky Sports.

"I knew I had done it before", Catlin said.

South African Justin Harding finished tied-third at four-over alongside France's Antoine Rozner and Dutchman Wil Besseling.

That includes this year's first-round pick, Jordyn Brooks , who is projected to play behind Wright on the weak side. Seattle also has Cody Barton and Ben Burr-Kirven, third- and fifth-round picks a year ago , respectively.

"That was one of my goals in 2019 when I earned my card, to win on the European Tour, and I wasn't able to win in 2019 so it's very nice to get it done this week and especially on a handsome golf course, and very demanding one".

"Just look at the names I was playing against this week". "The nerves were going nuts the whole round". This is the second largest Tour in the world but its very, very close to the PGA Tour and the calibre of play out here is fantastic.

"I didn't want to drive all the way back and not have them serve food and so I made a very poor judgement call and stopped into a pub and I believe the restaurant is the one that sent in the footage".

Kaymer finished with a bogey on the final hole, barely missing an effort from off the green, and Catlin tapped in for par to take the title.

Johannes Veerman of Sugar Land, Texas, shot 73-73-72-74-292 to finish in a big tie for 10th with Lee Westwood of England (76-73-76-67-292), Jamie Donaldson of Wales (72-69-73-78-292), Steven Brown of England (73-74-74-71-292), Lorenzo Gagli of Italy (74-69-71-78-292), David Horsey of England (74-73-72-73-292), and Sami Valimaki of Finland (77-69-69-77-292).
