Buzz: Bhullar, a 30-year-old from India, picked up his first career European Tour victory by holding off Australia’s Anthony Quayle and four-time major winner Ernie Els. Bhullar, who has four Asian Tour victories in the last three years and nine in his career, closed in 6-under 66. After Quayle eagled the par-5 17th, Bhullar chipped in for eagle on the hole and ended up edging Quayle by a shot. “It was just a matter of time, and I’m glad it happened on this stage,” Bhullar said. Quayle capped his tournament with a course-record 63 while Els, who hadn’t had a top-10 finish since June 2016, finished in a share of third after a closing 65. Gwk
