11 – Under par winning total from Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano

6 – The score he posted on the last hole to win by one shot

851,346 – Euros he banks for his seventh European Tour victory

31 – The number of places he moves up The Race to Dubai – from 35th to fourth

3 – BMW-sponsored events he has now won after the 2006 BMW Asian Open and 2012 BMW Italian Open

10 – Shots higher winning total than in 2012 when Peter Hanson prevailed

12 – The places gained by Francesco Molinari thanks to an eight under par 64

25 – Eagles made over the four rounds at Lake Malaren – two of which came from Martin Kaymer on Sunday

16 – Shots better off Peter Hanson was in his final round than in his first (63 vs 79)

5 – The number of rounds he has played in the last five weeks (one practice and four competition)

45,000 – The attendance at Lake Malaren this week

0.19 – The percentage that figure is of Shanghai’s 24million-strong population*
