Sebastian Heisele wins the Open de Bretagne

Sebastian Heisele claimed his maiden European Challenge Tour title in style, producing a closing 65 to win the 2019 Open de Bretagne at Golf Blue Green de Pléneuf Val-André.

The German started the day with a one-shot lead and remained in control, carding six birdies, including five over his closing nine holes, to finish the week on 13 under par, two shots clear of his nearest challenger Josh Geary.

New Zealander Geary, playing two groups ahead of Heisele, briefly took the lead with an eagle on the 11th hole but the 31-year-old duly responded with birdies on the 10th, 11th and 13th and despite a dropped shot on the 14th hole he parred the 18th to secure his first Challenge Tour victory.
