Bourdy wins Mallorca Classic golf tournament

France's Gregory Bourdy won the EPGA Mallorca Classic on Sunday with a closing final round of 67 for his first European Tour title to qualify for the season-ending Volvo Masters at Valderrama next week.

Bourdy carded three birdies and no bogeys in near flawless fourth round for a 12-under-par total of 268, his only moment of concern coming when his approach to the 16th cleared the water guarding the front of the green by a matter of feet.

The 25-year-old from Bordeaux, who was drenched in champagne by compatriots Thomas Levet and Christian Cevaer on the 18th green, claimed the first prize of 238,000 pounds after finishing two shots clear of England's Sam Little.

I was really pleased that Bourdy won and have a feeling that this guy could go far - I have been watching a fair bit of the European Tour this year and I have liked the look of his game.

He has a really great name for golf too - Bourdy for birdie :-)
