Bernd Wiesberger wins the Italian Open; Lanto Griffin lifts Houston Open trophy

Bernd Wiesberger was able to cruise all the way to win his third title win of the year at the Italian Open. Bernd Wiesberger pushed Matt Fitzpatrick with an astounding final round 65 at the Olgiata.

Bernd Wiesberger missed the majority of his last season after suffering from a wrist injury.




On the final day of Italian Open, Bernd Wiesberger made 6 birdies along with a few clutch par saves to post a winning score 16 under as he finished one shot clear of Fitzpatrick.

Fitzpatrick had a led earlier night and made a strong start of the final day with a birdie on the 2nd but then Bernd Wiesberger started his march up on the Leaderboard by having 3 birdies in a row. He started posting brides from the 5th and then adding in another birdie on the 9th to have 31.

After Fitzpatrick made a huge error on the ninth tee the Austrian player found himself on a solid lead.

This title win for Bernd Wiesberger is his 2nd one for the Rolex Series of the season. He had earlier won the Scottish Open back in July.

Somewhere else, Laton Griffin won his first PGA Tour title at the Houston open after a birdie putt on 16th and then saving a clutch par.

Griffin had to battle hard on the final day for the lead against Mark Hubbard and Scott Harrington. Harrington had a late bogey on the 17th which costed him greatly as Griffin made a par on the 72nd hole to gain the one-stroke victory at 14 under par.
