| ||Matthew Zions ran away with this title last year as his final-round 69 gave
him an impressive seven-stroke victory. The win was his one and only on the
European Tour and came against a watered-down field as the best players in
the world were competing at the U.S. Open. This event is again playing
opposite the year`s second major. Next week, the tour heads to Germany for
the BMW International Open, where Pablo Larrazabal beat Sergio Garcia in a
playoff last year.
