Result: Wade Ormsby claims first European Tour title with victory at Hong Kong Open

Wade Ormsby wins the Hong Kong Open to claim his first European Tour title at the 264th attempt ahead of Rafa Cabrera Bello.

Wade Ormsby has claimed his first European Tour title after a dramatic conclusion to the Hong Kong Open.

The 37-year-old won by one shot after closing with a two-under-par 68 at the Hong Kong Golf Club in Fanling to finish on 11-under 269.

A birdie at the 17th gave Ormsby the outright lead, and when Alexander Bjork bogeyed the last soon after, the Australian held a two-shot advantage.

However, Ormsby - playing in his 264th European Tour event - bogeyed the 18th hole and looked to be heading for a playoff with Rafa Cabrera Bello.

The Spaniard went on to drop a shot at the last, just as he did a year ago, to slip into a four-way tie for second place alongside Sweden's Bjork and American duo Julian Suri and Paul Peterson.

India's SSP Chawrasia had to settle for a share of seventh place after his challenge collapsed following a triple bogey at the par-four ninth.

Race to Dubai champion Tommy Fleetwood of England finished one shot ahead of Chawrasia in sixth spot on nine-under after he could only manage a one-under 69 in the final round.
