Frenchman Stal shot a seven under par final round to reach 19-under par, one clear of his nearest competitor. 

Stal relied on FJ Performance Apparel and FJ ICON MyJoys en route to the victory. 

“It's really crazy and I’m very happy to win this tournament," said Stal post round.

  • Another victory for FootJoy today.  Congratulations to Gary on his first victory.  Hope to see him in the winners circle on the European tour again this year.  A job well done.  

  • With a little help from a massive collapse, nice win for the rookie.

  • Way to hang in there and win.

  • Nice win! It is perhaps a touch ironic that this Frenchman should be the victorious beneficiary of a late round collapse to win -  I hope this marks his ascension to the ranks of of the most well-known French golfers, a title held for a long long time by Jean Van de Velde lost the great Claret Jug in an epic late round collapse!

    Way to go Gary!

  • Great job on grinding it out. He certainly got a little help but that's golf. It's never over until the final putt is holed. Congrats Gary, I hope you win many, many more.

  • A weekend of determination and drive.

    Another Victorious weekend for FJ.

    -ICONs for ALL

  • Credit to this young man for taking advantage of Kaymer's  gag. Hung tough with Rory looming, great weekend for FJ and Titleist.

  • Winners wear FootJoy!!  A comfortable shoe that performs.
