Tom McKibbin held off a crowded leaderboard, and a couple of home favourites at the Porsche European Open to secure his first career DP World Tour victory. Tom finished with a final round of 70 to finish nine under par, and was the only athlete to shoot all four rounds under par with rounds of 72-69-72-70. On the 18th hole, McKibbin found the green from 203 yards out of the semi-rough, leaving a comfortable two-putt to claim a two-stroke victory.

This was only McKibbin's 26th start on the DP World Tour after graduating from the European Challenge Tour, and he becomes the youngest Irish golfer to win on DP World Tour since fellow Team TaylorMade athlete (and Holywood, Northern Ireland), Rory McIlroy in 2009.
