AGADIR, Morocco (AP) — Alejandro Canizares of Spain completed a wire-to-wire victory at the Trophee Hassan II by shooting a 2-under 70 in the final round Sunday for a five-stroke win.
Leading after all four rounds, Canizares made six birdies and dropped four shots for a 19-under 269 total.
"Golf is such a special game because I came here a little depressed about my game," Canizares told the European Tour website. "It wasn't on. I wasn't hitting the ball well, I wasn't putting well. And after 10 minutes practicing with my coach and 30 minutes practicing with a putting coach, it just clicked and it just felt so natural, so easy. I felt like the golf course was easy for me."
Andy Sullivan was second after shooting the lowest score of the day. The Englishman had 10 birdies and a bogey for a 63.
Magnus Carlsson of Sweden carded a 68 to share third place with Seve Benson of England (71) at 276.
Canizares won the Russian Open in 2006 and tied for fifth place at the Qatar Masters in January.
