Quesne storms to first Tour title
Monday 19 March 2012
Julien Quesne claimed his maiden European Tour title yesterday when he matched the Aloha course record with an eight-under-par 64 to take the Andalucia Open near Marbella.
The French world No 322, who earned promotion from last season's Challenge Tour, stormed past the Spanish overnight leader, Eduardo de la Riva, to finish with a 17-under 271. "It's the best day of my life," he said.
Two strokes back in second after a 68 was Italian teenager Matteo Manassero, who had led by three shots after his opening record-equalling 64, while De La Riva carded a 70 to finish third.
