Higgo gets maiden-tour win

Garrick Higgo secured a life changing first European Tour victory at the Open de Portugal at Royal Óbidos thanks to a stunning bogey-free seven under par final round of 65.

The left-handed Paul Roos Gymnasium old boy, whose final bogey of the week occurred on the 10th hole of his second round, finished on 19 under par, one stroke clear of Spain’s Pep Angles, who finished second on 18 under par.

Higgo, whose victory comes in just his seventh Tour start, admitted the feeling had not yet sunk in following his win.

“It feels pretty surreal to be honest. I’m sure it’s still going to kick in but my family and everyone is excited, I’m excited, it’s an awesome feeling.”

Higgo now adds a European Tour title to two victories on the Sunshine Tour, and credited a change in his putting as key to his victory in Portugal.

“It is ideal to win one of the dual-ranked events because one can get straight onto the European Tour. It’s an awesome feeling to get it done.”
