Victor Dubuisson held his nerve superbly to shoot a final round of 69 and fend off a high profile chasing pack to clinch his first European Tour victory at the Turkish Airlines Open.
The Frenchman wearing Contour Casual™ golf shoes and FJ Apparel, headed into the last round with a five-shot lead, but given the quality of his peers, including The Race to Dubai leader – Henrik Stenson (FJ ICON™ & Pure Touch™); it was always going to be a long day for Dubuisson.
The 23 year olds performance was superlative under such pressure and he showed a level of positivity that held strong throughout the round, even if his scoring didn’t quite reflect this during his front nine.
Indeed, nine straight pars certainly gave a glimmer of hope to the field and it appeared Jamie Donaldson (FJ ICON™ & StaSof®) would be in with a shout, especially after he made an ace on 16 to claim a million air miles, a prize that will come in handy for the touring professional.
The bigger prize was not to be for Donaldson, however, and despite briefly tying for the lead Dubuisson converted birdies on 10, 15 17 and 18 to close out in style and claim the €848,930 first prize by two strokes.
“I don't know how to describe it,” said Dubuisson. “Now I don't realise what's happening. I felt so much pressure on the last hole.
“But even on the last putt, I was feeling so much stress. After this day, it was the longest day on the course that I've ever had. I'm very proud of what I did.”
Heading across the Indian Ocean to the Australian PGA Championship and Adam Scott delighted the home crowd with a superb victory at Royal Pines.
On a storm-delayed final round Scott (FJ Sport™shoes & StaSof®) shot 4-under over the closing seven holes to finish on 14-under -270 and claim his first-ever Joe Kirkwood Cup.
The four shot victory topped off a superb year for 33 year old, the highlight of course being his first major win at Augusta in April.
"It's exactly what I wanted this week. It's all worked out," Scott told Grandstand.
"It's kind of the icing on the cake this one for me this year I think. With everything that's happened and then to win here is a great feeling in front of friends and family and all the Queenslanders."
