Australian Wade Ormsby has had his first ever European Tour victory this week at the UBS Hong Kong Open. Since 2004, Ormsby has competed in 263 events on the European Tour but never managed to secure number 1 spot for himself. Most recently he finished 5th at the Andalucia Valderrama Masters, but it was this week that Ormsby dominated the field to secure his first title on Tour. Despite a three-putt bogey on the last, Ormsby won the event by 1 shot over Julian Suri, Paul Peterson, Alexander Björk and Rafa Cabrera Bello who all finished at -10. Cabrera Bello has a putt on the last to force a playoff, but failed to make the clutch putt, resulting in a maiden win for Ormsby.
Race to Dubai Champion Tommy Fleetwood had a good start to defending his title, finishing in standalone 6th position at -9, just ahead of veteran Miguel Ángel Jiménez who carded a stunning 63 in his final round. The 37 year-old Ormsby will now have exemption until 2020, after winning on his 264th attempt.
Congrats to the South Australian, we are all stoked here at Golf Gods for his first win on the European Tour!
