Miami, FL, December 3, 2019 — An incredible back nine saw longstanding Callaway Apparel ambassador Pablo Larrazabal claim his first European Tour win since 2015 and fifth victory overall. Pablo’s victory represented the second European Tour win for
Callaway Apparel in 2019.
Pablo drew strength from his idol on the back nine to overcome some errant shots and bogeys midway through the final round where he also experienced severe blisters on his feet that made walking the fairways and swinging a club a struggle.
“I woke up this morning and I didn’t think I was going to play,” said Larrazabal. “I couldn’t put my shoe on, I couldn’t walk to the buggy. I really struggled on the back nine. I said to myself ‘If Tiger can win a US Open with a broken leg I can win with a blister.’ I just fought hard.”
Pablo wore a combination of 2019 summer and autumn polos at Leopard Creek, South Africa to keep cool and dry with temperatures soaring north of 100 degrees. Wearing his customary red polo on Sunday, Pablo completed a relentless display of ‘Spanish flair’ golf
over the back nine, to win by 1 shot with a birdie on the 18th hole.
