Wil Besseling has been named as the winner of the 2018 Challenge Tour Shot of the Year competition after picking up a 28 per cent share of the vote.

The Dutchman, who finished 46th on the Order of Merit, earned the approval of the voting public for his delightful lob at the Hopps Open de Provence.

The 33 year old over-hit his tee shot on the par three 13th to the back of the green and was left with a tricky downhill chip as he looked to save par.

However, Besseling played an exquisite lob shot out of the rough, which bounced on the fringe and snaked towards the hole, dropping in for an unlikely – but brilliant – birdie.

Besseling beat Robert MacIntyre, who finished as the competition’s runner-up with his monster eagle putt at the Foshan Open, with Marco Iten’s pinpoint iron shot at the Monaghan Irish Open completing the top three.

Of those who voted for Besseling, a winner has been selected at random to be the lucky recipient of Challenge Tour Grand Final Champion Adri Arnaus’ bag.
