FJ Ambassador Bernd Wiesberger won his first European Tour title in fine style at the Ballantine’s Championship as the Austrian cruised to a five shot victory in FJ ICON MyJoys and StaSof Glove.Five shots clear overnight after consecutive course-record rounds of 65, the 26 year old was coolness personified as he compiled a closing round of 68.

He certainly finished off in style as he drained a 15 foot birdie putt at the last for good measure to finish with an 18 under par total. “I just tried to enjoy it and I had the three best rounds of my life,” said Wiesberger. “I tried not to make bogeys and I did that pretty well, it was awesome. “My game plan was to hit as many greens as possible and try to make putts, and they dropped in the end.The victory earns him €367,500 which moves him to €438,464 in The Race to Dubai. It could also potentially move to around 95th in the Official World Golf Ranking from 170th.
