Romain Wattel claimed his maiden European Tour victory at the KLM Open after holding his nerve on the last hole to sit a top the leader board, one clear of Canadian Austin Connelly.

Wattel secured victory using a mixed set of clubs. Like many of his fellow Nike Athletes, Wattel took the decision when Nike announced they would be leaving the hardware sector to play with equipment for different manufacturers.

Key to the Frenchman’s success in Holland was his strong iron play and sublime putting. He hit 80% of the Greens in regulation using the brand new Titleist 718 AP2 irons and finished the week second in the putts per GIR stats, averaging 1.6 putts per green using his Scotty Cameron R&D Concept 1 putter.
