Pablo Larrazabal produced a remarkable comeback and won the title at the 2019 Alfred Dunhill Championship. Larrazabal started the day with three shots advantage, but lost it quickly after he played the front nine at six over par. The Spaniard was struggling with blisters and at some point he was three shots behind the leaders. The pain was visible on Larrazabal’s face, but he managed to regroup and win his first title in more than four years. Larrazabal carded three birdies on his last four holes to climb to eight under par. This was enough to finish one clear of Joel Sjöholm who played great golf today and posted final round 69.
