Victor Perez created a significant surface in the last round of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship to get over a high- course chasing pack at Yas Links Abu Dhabi.
The Frenchman held a slim one- shot lead in the closing phases on Sunday mid-day prior to holing out from a shelter at the 17th for a birdie to extend his benefit to 2.
And despite the fact that he encountered difficulty at the 18th, a bogey there sufficed to safeguard a one- shot win as he gathered a 66 to complete the event on 18 under the same level, with Australian Min Woo Lee as well as Sweden’s Sebastian Söderberg sharing 2nd position on 17 under the same level.
Perez went into the last the first day stroke back however made an exceptional beginning as he made the turn in 4 under as well as proceeded his fee with back- to- back birdies to start the back 9. He replied to a gone down chance at the 14th with a birdie at the 15th prior to wild scenes appeared on the 17th as the 30- year- old’s superb shelter shot discovered all-time low of the mug.
That opening- out inevitably secured his triumph.
Pádraig Harrington ended up 4th on 16 under the same level after publishing rounds of 64 as well as 67 over the weekend break, while Alex Noren as well as Francesco Molinari shared 5th on 14 under.
