BRIDGEND, Wales (April 8, 2017) - At the Duncan Putter hosted by Southerndown Golf Club it was Sweden's Viktor Hagborg-Asp finishing 1-under to win the title by a pair of strokes over fellow countryman Gustav Andersson (+1) and Welshman Oliver Brown (+1).
Hagborg-Asp combined rounds of 75-67-67 to take the title in what was rain-shortened event following heavy rains on Saturday.
Andersson despite coming up two shots short provided one of the highlights of the week however, in the form of a hole-in-one on the fifth hole during the final round.
Five others shared fourth at 3-over.
