LAS PALMAS, Spain – South African Garrick Higgo won the Gran Canaria Open with three strokes for his second win on Sunday’s European Tour.

The 21-year-old Higgo shot a 7- under-63 to fend off an indictment from Maximilian Kieffer, who finished second after an 8-under-62 with seven birdies and an eagle. Kieffer lost in the fifth playoff hole at the Austrian Open.

Higgo had five birdies and an eagle on the Meloneras Golf Course in the Canary Islands and finished the tournament at 25 o’clock. His further European Tour win was at the Portugal Open last season.

“It’s unreal,” said Higgo. “I can’t put into words, it feels amazing. It’s quite a relief to be finished now. It wasn’t really over until the last hole, I knew anything could happen, especially when the wind came up. It was a bit stressful. “

Higgo is ready to move on after Gran Canaria wins

“I’ll just keep going,” he said. “I’ll play next week, the week after, and see where my game is going. It feels good, I’ve worked really hard with my trainer and everyone at home so it feels great. “
