SOTOGRANDE, Spain (AP) Patience paid off for Matt Fitzpatrick at the tough Valderrama course in Spain on Sunday.

The Englishman made 15 straight pars then rallied with two birdies on his last three holes to win the Andalucia Masters by three shots.

"Amazing," Fitzpatrick said. "Particularly the way I did it. I was very patient all day, didn't try to press anything, stuck to our targets and managed to make all the putts in the end. I'm delighted with the win."
