Canizares claims Russian Open win
Spain's Alejandro Canizares
Canizares only had one bogey in his final round

FINAL LEADERBOARD:
-22 A Canizares (Esp)
-18 D Drysdale (Sco)
-17 M Lundberg (Swe), G Murphy (Ire)
-16 L Westerberg (Swe)

Spain's Alejandro Canizares shot seven birdies in the final round to take victory at the Russian Open in Moscow.

Canizares, the son of former Ryder Cup player Jose-Maria Canizares, fired a six-under 66 to hold off the challenge of Scotland's David Drysdale.

Drysdale could only manage a 69 in his final round to finish in second place, four strokes behind.

Last year's winner Mikael Lundberg of Sweden had a hole in one at the par-three eighth for joint third.

"This is unbelievable," said Canizares. "This means everything.

"I was trying to get my card through exemptions and now I have done it by winning my third event so this is way beyond my expectations.

"Now I can focus on winning more. I hit the ball great this week and my rhythm and timing with my irons was perfect.

"This is probably the best that I have played so far in my career, one of my best weeks ever."
