Garrick Higgo celebrates in Gran Canaria
Garrick Higgo celebrates in Gran Canaria

Garrick Higgo nailed a hole in one en route to securing a second European Tour victory in the space of 14 days at the Canary Islands Championship on Sunday.

The South African lifted the Gran Canaria Open trophy only a fortnight ago and was in a league of his own with a closing 64 at Golf Costa Adeje, winning by six strokes from Maverick Antcliff with a score of 27 under par.

His card included seven birdies and two bogeys but the crowning moment of another fine success came when he aced the par-three seventh.

Higgo now has three European Tour wins from only 26 events played, making him the fastest South African to three wins (not including majors and world golf championships).

That matches the record of Tiger Woods for fewest number of events required to lift three titles on the European/PGA Tour since 1990.

"Jeez, it's amazing. I'm just really happy and thankful," Higgo said in quotes reported by the European Tour.

"It's not easy to lead, the other day was my first time and in this game anything can happen."

Tapio Pulkkanen was seven shots back in third, while Andrew Johnston was among a cluster of players tied for fourth at 19 under.
