South Africa’s Dean Burmester gained the European Tour’s Tenerife Open by 5 photographs after capturing an excellent nine-under-par 62 on the ultimate day at Costa Adeje.
The 31-year-old from Bloemfontein, started the final day one shot again from joint third spherical leaders Kalle Samooja and Nicolai von Dellingshausen, with 18 gamers inside 5 strokes of the lead.
Playing alongside Samooja and von Dellingshausen, Burmester laid down the gauntlet early on with 5 birdies within the opening seven holes, which contributed to a five-under entrance 9 of 30 for a one-shot lead as the ultimate group reached the flip.
The seven-time Sunshine Tour winner by no means let up all day and birdies 1t 11, 13, 15 and one other on the final all added as much as a error-free 62 that took him to 25 underneath. It was Burmester’s first ever victory outdoors of the African continent, following his win on the Tshwane Open in 2017. The €230,000 first prize strikes him as much as 18th within the Race to Dubai rating.
Von Dellingshausen holed a nerveless eagle putt on the closing gap to say the very best end of his European Tour profession, outright runner-up on 20 underneath par, whereas Samooja and Poland’s Adrian Meronk shared third place on 19 underneath. Last month’s Austrian Open winner John Catlin completed one shot again in fifth.
