Paul carded -6 under par 66 to win the Porsche European Open by one shot at -14 under par, good putting being the key;
“This is an incredibly prestigious tournament, I’m over the moon to be European Open champion.”
“It was nice to make the putts when it counted. And that really was the key.”
“The ball-striking was excellent. I gave myself an awful lot of chances.”
Tied in second place that one shot back were, rookie Robert Macintyre, Scotland, -4 under 68 today, Mathias Schwab, Austria, -6 under 66, and the home man Bernd Ritthammer from Germany with -4 under 68 for his last round.
Bernd enjoyed the experience of the home support for him;
“It was quite a ride, I hadn’t experienced something like that before.”
“Playing that well and being in contention on home soil is special.”
“Even from the first hole it was so full with people. The support was unbelievable, I just need some time to digest. I didn’t expect it.”
