Ormsby wins Hong Kong Open

Wade Ormsby

Wade Ormsby prevailed from a dramatic final day in Fanling to claim his first European Tour title at the UBS Hong Kong Open.

The Australian entered the final day a shot behind SSP Chawrasia and when he turned in level-par 34, he was four behind his Indian rival.

The long-time leader then triple-bogeyed the ninth to bring a host of players back into contention and Ormsby held a two-shot lead as he stood on the 18th fairway.

In the group behind, Rafa Cabrera Bello birdied the 17th to pile on the pressure and a closing three-putt bogey from Ormsby left the duo in a tie at 11 under.

Cabrera Bello then put his second shot the bunker at the front of the green and when he failed to get up and down, the title was Ormsby's.

Alexander Björk , Paul Peterson and Julian Suri finished alongside Cabrera Bello at ten under, a shot clear of Race to Dubai champion Tommy Fleetwood who got the defence of his title off to a good start.
