The final leaderboard from the Trophee Hassan II 2018, where Alex Levy was victorious
The final Trophee Hassan II leaderboard 2018:
Alexander Levy catapulted himself into contention for a Ryder Cup spot as he held off Alvaro Quiros at the Trophee Hassan II in Morocco.
Quiros held a narrow lead heading into Sunday, but it was Levy who came out of the blocks the quickest with a two-under par front-nine.
It was a congested final round at the Royal Golf Dar Es Salam, with the likes of Quiros, Joakim Lagergren, Alexander Bjork, Mikko Ilonen and Erik Van Rooyen all in with a chance over the final holes. Even Andy Sullivan was in contention, but a late bogey at the 17th ended his hopes.
When Levy bogeyed the 16th, it looked as though a thrilling finale was to ensue. But a stunning tee shot into the difficult par-3 17th all but finished things, as Levy would go on to par the last to claim his fifth European Tour title.
He heads into next week’s Volvo China Open as the defending champion, and on this form, it would be of no surprise to see him lift the trophy for the third time.
