Rafael Cabrera-Bello snatches title with closing 60
Unheralded Spaniard Rafael Cabrera-Bello carded an astonishing 11-under 60 in the final round of the Austrian Open to land his first European Tour title in Vienna on Sunday.
The 25-year-old Spaniard had a lengthy putt on the 18th to become the first player to record a 59 on the European Tour but narrowly missed.
Starting the day eight shots behind Saturday’s leader Benn Barham, the world number 220 shot 30 on the outward and inward nines to seal the win.
Cabrera-Bello’s round was the 14th of 60 on the tour, according to the European Tour (www.europeantour.com).
“It’s just amazing,” Cabrera-Bello told reporters. “I played the best golf of my life and I can’t believe it. I was so far back I wasn’t thinking about winning.”
