Cabrera Bello wins in Vienna with record round of 60

Spain’s Rafael Cabrera Bello shot a European Tour record-equalling 60 to come from eight behind and win the Austrian Open in Vienna today.

The 25-year-old even had a chance on the final green to record the circuit’s first-ever 59, but just missed a 30-foot eagle putt.

After tapping in for his 11th birdie he was two in front of overnight leader Benn Barham. The Englishman then birdied the 16th, but missed a 18-footer on the last to finish one behind.

It was the 14th round of 60 on the Tour, but only the third time someone had achieved it on the final day and won.

Cabrera Bello’s first Tour win came with a 20-under-par total of 264.

Damien McGrane was the best-placed of the Irish players on 12-under, with Gary Murphy a further shot back.
