Cleveland Golf/Srixon staffer Gonzalo Fernandez-Castaño continued his stellar 2012 European Tour campaign by winning the BMW Italian Open over the weekend. The 31-year-old Spaniard closed with a scorching 8-under-par 64 for a four-day total of 24-under 264, edging Garth Mulroy by two shots at Royal Park I Roveri.
It’s the sixth career European Tour title for Gonzo and second at this event, matching his victory in 2007. He was coming off a tie for fifth last week at the KLM Open and has had two other top-three finishes in 2012.
“I feel as though my game is hitting top form just at the right time of the season to enjoy an excellent finish,” said Fernandez-Castaño.
The victory, worth €250,000, moves Gonzo to 37th in the Official Golf World Rankings and 19th in the Chase To Dubai.
“I can’t wait to get to Dubai for the DP World Tour Championship,” he said after the win. “To be in that elite field for the end-of-year event means you have had a great year. I’ve jumped up many spots with this win, and now I have a chance of finishing in the top 10.”
