Tyrrell Hatton fired a brilliant birdie at the last to win the Italian Open and secure back-to-back European Tour titles.

It had looked like the tournament would be decided by a play-off, with clubhouse leaders Ross Fisher and Kiradech Aphibarnrat alongside Hatton on 20 under par as the 26 year old stood at the 18th tee.

But Hatton coolly rolled in his birdie putt from around 15 feet at the last to get to 21 under and clinch the trophy.

Here, we look at what those who finished just behind him had to say after their fourth rounds.

Kiradech Aphibarnrat (65, -20)



"I've been playing solid golf for all four rounds. Every single hole today, I stayed patient and focused on the game. I made a double on the 16th but the birdie on the 17th was one of the best shots that I've ever hit. Overall I still finished tied second. I'm still happy with the result. It was a fantastic putt on the last hole."

Ross Fisher (63, -20)

"Last week I had a goal to shoot 62 and managed to better that and shoot 61. I thought, if I aim for 60, I might beat it and get a 59. But hey, 63, it's a fantastic score on a Sunday.

Matt Wallace (69, -19)



"I played really nicely. I just didn't hole the putts. That kind of let me down this week. If I had putted half-decent, I probably would have run away with this event, which is a shame. It's normally the best part of my game. We'll learn from this and we'll go again."
