Joakim Lagergren defeated Mike Lorenzo-Vero in the first hole of a sudden death playoff to claim his maiden European Tour title.

The 26-year-old Swede began the final round two shots adrift of Lorenzo-Vera, but his final round 68 was enough to force extra holes in Sicily. Lagergren said following the victory, "I've been waiting for this moment my whole career. I'm so relieved and I'm so happy at the moment, I can't describe it in words.”
