Sergio Garcia victorious at the 2019 KLM Open

Sergio Garcia victorious at the 2019 KLM Open

Spaniard, Sergio Garcia secured his 16th European Tour title following a hard-fought one-shot victory, over the 18-year-old Nicolai Hojgaard, on his debut at the 2019 KLM Open on Sunday.

The International in Amsterdam hosted the 100th edition of the tournament. It is a historic golf venue that dates far back as 1912. However, this also coincided with event sponsor KLM – the Dutch airline – celebrating their centenary year in business during a special week in Amsterdam.

Garcia began had the day tied at the lead with Callum Shinkwin at 15 under. However, he then endured a mixed front nine where he was leading by two at the fifth, only to be trailing playing partner Callum Shinkwin by one shot at the seventh following back-to-back bogeys.

But, a double-bogey at the tenth by the Englishman is what handed Garcia the initiative. So, the 39-year-old capitalised on his experience to stay ahead of the pack by a single stroke with an 18 under par total.

More on how Sergio Garcia claimed his tight 2019 KLM Open victory.

“It was honestly amazing to have my brother, Angie my wife and little Azalea [Garcia’s daughter] here, it’s very special,” Garcia said.
