SOTOGRANDE, Spain (April 1, 2017) -- Jack Davidson might be from Wales but he really likes playing golf in Spain. In the beginning of March he won the Spanish International Amateur and now he is the Euro National Cup champion.

Playing at Spain's Real Club de Golf Sotogrande, Davidson closed the week with a 1-over 73 to tally a 5-under showing and a four shot win over Robin Dawson, 1-under for the tournament.

Davidson wobbled early with a bogey on No. 1 before regaining his form with birdies on each of the next two holes to reach 7-under. Those two birdies proved crucial as they would ultimately provide Davidson with the early padding he needed.

Overall Davidson birdied four-times and bogeyed five-times during the final round.

Ireland's Robin Dawson, who began the day three behind, made an early move with an eagle on the par-5 2nd to reach 5-under and pull within one shot but five bogeys and just two bogeys the rest of the way derailed his chances.

Nicolas Schellong of the Czech Republic finished third at 6-over, Oliver Guillberg of Sweden was fourth at 8-over while two others shared fifth at 10-over.


The team from Wales completed a solid group effort in the team competition finishing 13-over and the winners by 11 shots.

Jack Davidson, David Boote, Owen Edwards and Joshua Davies made of the Welsh quartet.

Ireland (+24) was second and Spain (+32) was third.


On a day where high scores were the norm France's Chloe Salort held on to win the Women's Division.

Despite a closing 5-over 77 that left her at 11-over, Salort was able to hold for a one-stroke win.

Salort started her round with a double-bogey and after 14 holes she was 6-over but her lone birdie on the 15th proved to be the difference maker.

Denmark's Puk Lyng Thomsen was second at 12-over while a two others shared third at 15-over.


The team from Holland, comprised of Roos Haarman, Romy Meekers and Zhen Bontan completed the week 26-over to win the team race.

Denmark at 26-over finished as the runner-up and Denmark; Norway shared third at 35-over.
