Craig Lawrie secured his first professional win at Onyria Palmares with a fine score of 12 under par to win by a single stroke from David Dixon, Felix Aberg and Rhys Enoch.

Hugo Santos was the first-round leader scoring a brilliant 8 under par 64 although a missed short putt for birdie on the last left a bitter taste in his mouth.

One shot behind Santos sat former champion Felix Aberg and the ever-present Jamie Abbott, with the eventual winner Lawrie sitting quietly in the background on 6 under par.

Lawrie had a dream start to the second round, with four birdies in a row, and got to 10 under par to lead the tournament but with the back nine yielding a lot of birdies, Lawrie would have to on his guard.

Former European Tour winner David Dixon posted an early target of 11 under par adding an impressive 8 under par 64 to his first round of 3 under par.

Rhys Enoch was next to finish and having lipped out for Eagle from the greenside trap and joined Dixon in the clubhouse lead.

Lawrie, meanwhile made a great birdie on the sixteenth to go 13 under par and lead by 2 but he immediately gave the advantage back with a bogey on the seventeenth, to hold a one-shot lead with one hole to play.

He made a solid par at the last to edge out Dixon and Enoch which left just Felix Aberg needing an Eagle at the last to tie but his gallant effort just failed and he had to be satisfied with a birdie and a tie for second place.

And so, a delighted Craig Lawrie received his cheque for 2,000€, a fitting reward for an impressive first win as a professional.
