In just his sixth start on the European Tour, Sami Valimaki claimed his maiden European Tour victory at the 2020 Oman Open.

The Finn used a bag full of the latest TaylorMade gear to secure victory over Brandon Stone in a play-off.

It was the 21-year-old’s work with the short stick that was crucial in notching the win.
