Chawrasia finishes 41st in Sicilian Open golf tournament

SSP Chawrasia produced one of his best rounds on European soil with a solid 5-under 66 to finish Tied-41st at the Rocco Forte Sicilian Open at Verdura Golf Club. Chawrasia, who has been struggling a bit off late, sunk in seven birdies against two bogeys in the final round. Chawrasia birdied third but gave back the gains on the next hole. Three birdies in a row from seventh to ninth saw him turn in 3-under and he dropped a shot on 11th. Three more birdies from 15th to 17th saw him finish at 66.

Joakim Lagergren claimed his maiden European Tour title in dramatic fashion defeating Mike Lorenzo-Vera in a play-off. Lagergren’s closing 68 got him to 16 under alongside Lorenzo-Vera – who signed for a 70. They were one ahead of England’s Andy Sullivan and Australian Lucas Herbert, who matched the lowest round of the week with a 63. The Swede hit a wonderful approach to eight feet set up a birdie on the first extra hole and handed him victory.
