With a birdie on the ninth hole of sudden death, Raphaël Jacquelin defeated Max Kieffer at the Open de España at Parador de El Saler in Valencia, Spain.
The Frenchman was 1-for-7 in birdie opportunities in the playoff before converting the winning putt from medium distance behind and above the hole at the par-4 18th, the only hole used in sudden death. Kieffer, a 22-year-old rookie from Germany playing in just his 16th event on the European Tour, left his longer birdie try well short to open the door. They finished regulation in 5-under 283, as did Felipe Aguilar of Chile. After the threesome carded two pars to start the playoff, Jacquelin and Kieffer birdied the third time through. Kieffer's was the highlight as he rolled his attempt in from long distance from a lie off the green in the front right. Aguilar was eliminated when his chip failed to fall. Jacquelin and Kieffer then parred the hole five more times before Jacquelin's second birdie. The nine-hole playoff ties the all-time European Tour record. Jacquelin, who will turn 39 years of age on May 8, picks up his fourth career title on the circuit. Sun, Apr 21, 2013 01:52:00 PM

Raphael Jacquelin posted a 3-under-par 32-36=68 in his final round of the inaugural Sicilian Open at Donnafugata Golf Resort & Spa to win by one stroke over Anthony Wall.

After Wall held the lead by two at the tournament's midpoint, Jacquelin snared it with a 69 in the third round (to Wall's 72). The final round was suspended for inclement weather, forcing a Monday finish. Upon returning to the course this morning, the duo traded birdies before Wall circled another at the 16th hole. The Brit then double-bogeyed 17 to fall two back. He rebounded with a birdie at the last, but Jacquelin managed par to secure the victory at 12-under 272. It's the Frenchman's third career European Tour victory, and first since the 2007 BMW Asian Open.

Raphael Jacquelin carded a 1-over-par 73 to win the BMW Asian Open by two strokes.

It was lucky the Raphael had the big lead going into the final round because he had four bogeys in his final six holes. His only other win on the European tour was at the 2005 Open de Madrid and it also was a wire-to-wire win. Ernie Els did have a nice T-5 in the event, which was pretty impressive considering he was in a Monday finish at the Verizon Heritage. Els will return to the PGA Tour at the Wachovia Championship.

Raphael Jacquelin, who added a three-under-par 69 to his opening-round 66, continues to lead the BMW Asian Open in Shanghai, China.

Jacquelin stands at -9 for the tournament and has a three-shot lead over Sung-man Lee of Korea. The big names are well back in this event; Ernie Els is at -2, Paul Casey (-1), and Retief Goosen (+1). Colin Montgomerie is in contention at -5, while John Daly is having as much trouble (or more) on the European Tour as he has been having in the U.S. He finished the second round at 11-over-par.
