Sunday, October 16, 2011
VILAMOURA, Portugal — England's Tom Lewis shot a 7-under 65 to come from four shots back to win the Portugal Masters on Sunday.
Lewis managed five of his seven birdies over the last seven holes for a two-shot victory over Rafael Cabrera-Bello, who held a four-stroke lead going into the final round. The Spanish golfer hit into the water on his way to a double-bogey 7 at the 12th to see his chances at victory fade.
The 20-year-old Lewis finished with a 21-under total of 267 to win in his third event since turning professional.
Gregory Havret (64), David Lynn (64), Christian Nilsson (71), Thomas Bjorne (71) and Jamie Donaldson (67) finished two strokes back of the unranked Lewis, who won $568,135.
