Fitzpatrick and Pavan had to return to the 18th hole, which by the first attempt they together passed and went to the par. At the second call, Andrea has not hit the best way from tee, but managed to perform a spectacular birdie that allowed him to win the long-awaited title.
“Before this week I played quite well, but sometimes I ruined the drives. With this, I often have problems,” said Pavan, who rose to the first hundred of the World Rating. “This hole doesn't suit me much, but I managed to perform birdie.”
