LIV's Eugenio Lopez-Chacarra gets first pro win in Thailand

Eugenio Lopez-Chacarra of Spain shot a final-round 69 to win his first professional tournament at the LIV Golf Invitational Series Bangkok event Sunday in Pathum Thani, Thailand.

For his three-stroke win over Patrick Reed, Lopez-Chacarra won $4 million in his fifth pro tournament.

"I've got no words; it means a lot,'' said Lopez-Chacarra, 22, per Sports Illustrated. "There's no secret. It's trusting yourself, putting in the hard work. I knew it was going to be hard today and I'm very pleased.''

Lopez-Chacarra, who decided to forgo his final season at Oklahoma State and sign with LIV Golf, entered the third and final round alone in first place, up five strokes. After a birdie on the first hole at Stonehill Golf Course, Lopez-Chacarra posted bogeys on the fourth and fifth holes, his first over-par holes of the week.

He rebounded, however, with a birdie at the sixth hole and three more on the back nine to finish the three rounds at 197, or 19-under.

Reed's solid round of 67, which included seven birdies, was undone by a pair of bogeys that left him in second place at 16-under.

Finishing at 15-under par for the tournament and another shot back, tied for third, were Paul Casey (65) and Richard Bland (68), both of England, and Sihwan Kim (68).

James Piot (68) and Harold Varner III (69) finished in a tie for sixth place at 14-under.

Lopez-Chacarra hadn't finished higher than 24th in his first four LIV tournaments. And he had some time to think about the possibilities of his first win when a weather delay stopped his round with three holes to go for more than 1 1/2 hours. He birded No. 17 after his return to all but seal the win.

Lopez-Chacarra won an additional $750,000 by leading the Fireballs to the team championship. He split the $3 million prize with Sergio Garcia, Abraham Ancer and Carlos Ortiz.
