Wiegele wins Saint-Omer Open


European Tour

SAINT-OMER, France – Martin Wiegele of Austria has shot a 3-under 68 to win the Saint-Omer Open and earn his first title on the European Tour.

Wiegele finished two shots ahead of a group of five players after making four birdies and carding only one bogey for a 277 total.

Pelle Edberg of Sweden was tied for second place with Raphael Jacquelin of France and English players Matt Haines, Robert Dinwiddie and Jamie Elson.

Overnight leader Elson hit one more birdie than Wiegele on Sunday but hurt his chances with seven bogeys to card a 73.

The 398th-ranked Wiegele won the Lexus Open in 2007 and the Karnten Golf Open this year on the Challenge Tour.
