He becomes the first Belgian to win a Rolex Series event with this sixth DP World Tour title and he moves back into the top-50 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

“Winning a Rolex Series, it’s as good as it gets in Europe. Hopefully this lists me, I’m not sure where, but I want to play all of the big tournaments and hopefully this gets me close.”

“Top-50 is your strive point and when I jumped out maybe three years ago, I took it badly, but I’m happy to be back again.

“I feel like I’ve turned the corner and I’m playing really good golf. I’m really in control of my ball flight and it’s nice to feel like that and making putts as well. My putting has improved massively and I felt like that’s the thing that really kept me going on the weekend.”
