28.4.2019: Double Triumph for Spanish Golfer at Royal Golf Club Dar Es Salam, - Ladies European Tour and European Tour !  Congratulations Jorge Campillo and Nuria Iturrios -  Viva España - !


Jorge Campillo, 32 years, Spain,  winner of the Trophée Hassan II  !

"It's been a long road," he said. "I'm grateful, but it's been way too long. Way too many hours of work since I was a boy to today. I'm just proud that I can say I'm a winner on the European Tour. "I just love the game, I love competing. Most people say, maybe I'm not a winner, but I was when I was an amateur. It was a matter of time, I think I proved it today.
"I made so many promises that I have to do after I win that I might have to take a few weeks off! "It was tough, I didn't have my A game. I was missing shots off the tee but I putted great. I hit some great shots coming in and I'm proud. I'm proud of the way I finished. I finished today like a champion."

The Spaniard arrived at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam with two second places and a third in his last four events and when he bogeyed two of his first three holes in round four, it looked like he may miss out again.
But the 32-year-old held his nerve brilliantly, birdieing the 16th and 17th to hit the front at nine under and finish ahead of Americans Sean Crocker and Julian Suri, and South African Erik van Rooyen after a closing 71.

After a stellar amateur career, Campillo turned professional in 2009 and graduated from the European Challenge Tour in 2011, finishing inside the top 100 on the Race to Dubai Rankings Presented by Rolex in every season since.

That included six second places - with four in the last three seasons - four thirds and 18 further top tens from 150 made cuts but he can now call himself a European Tour champion at long last.

Last sunday, 28.4.2019, Nuria Iturrios -Spain, Palma de Mallorca- won the Lalla Meryem Cup, Morocco at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam for the second time !

“It’s amazing for me to win again here. I’m so happy to be here and I hope to keep it going,” said Iturrios, who tied for second in the Australian Ladies Open at Bonville Golf Resort earlier this year.
“On the last hole, I told my coach, ‘We are getting so close,’ and I was nervous but I think we did a great job. I just want to keep going and enjoy it now,” she added, thanking her coach, Jose Luis Palacios, who also caddied when she won on the same course three years ago.

The 23-year-old  carded a final round of three-under-par 70 to win by seven over Swedish duo Caroline Hedwall and overnight co-leader Lina Boqvist.
Iturrios and Boqvist started the final round tied at 10-under but Iturrios quickly gained a two stroke lead with birdies on the par-5 second and par-3 third holes.
Iturrios missed birdie putts on the fourth, fifth and sixth holes and then Boqvist gained a stroke with a birdie at the seventh. Iturrios responded with a birdie on the par-5 eighth to regain her two-stroke advantage.
At the ninth, Iturrios hit a tree with her drive, but threaded her second shot through a gap in the branches and made a brilliant up and down for par.
When Boqvist double bogeyed the 10th to put Iturrios four clear, the leader seemed to be in an seemingly unassailable position but Boqvist then birdied the 14th to get within three again.
However, Boqvist’s short game let her down over the closing stretch and she dropped four shots with bogeys on 15 and 17, followed by a double-bogey on 18.
Iturrios completed a level par back nine to win on 13-under, the only player in the field to post four sub-par rounds and moved to the top of the LET order of merit.

Iturrios jumped 29 places up to ninth place on the European Solheim Cup points list, boosting her chances of qualification for the biennial transatlantic matchplay contest at Gleneagles in September this year !
