Sergio Garcia made it two European Tour wins a row and signalled that he is back to his best at the 2011 Andalucia Masters in Valderrama. Garcia dug deep to make two clutch putts on 17 and 18 to edge out friend and countryman Miguel Angel Jimenez.
In a tournament where the excellent Valderrama course was once again the star of the week, several sub plots played themselves out on a Sunday of much drama. One of those surrounded Richie Ramsay who punched the air after making birdie on the last for sole third place. The Scot earlier took double bogey on the par three 15th after stewards directed him to search for his tee shot in the wrong place and declare it “lost” after five fruitless minutes. The ball was then found beside the green in a bunker.
On a brighter note Ireland’s Shane Lowry scored himself a solo fourth place finish after a brilliant 67. The €150,000 prizemoney stamps Lowry’s passport to Dubai for the season ending Race To Dubai conclusion.
