Pablo Larrazabal received arguably the best early 40th birthday present possible Sunday in Incheon for the DP World Tour's Korea Championship.
The DP World Tour was playing at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea in Incheon this week and Larrazabal was one-stroke back of Robert MacIntyre heading into the final round.
MacIntyre, 26, was looking for his third DP World Tour win after rounds of 69, 70, and 69.
Behind him was fellow Scotsman Scott Jamieson, Larrazabal, and South Korea's own Sanghyun Park.
And while MacIntyre couldn't get anything going on Sunday, shooting an even-par 72, Larrazabal went on a back-nine birdie streak to earn his eighth DP World Tour win just a few weeks before he turns 40.
He told the DP World Tour following his victory:
The Spaniard shot a final-round 5-under par 67 to win the tournament by two strokes over Marcus Helligkilde.
Fellow Spaniard Jorge Campillo finished tied for third alongside Jamieson, Park, and Joost Luiten. MacIntyre fell back into a tie for seventh, four strokes back.
The total prize fund for the tournament was $2,000,000 with 2,750 Race to Dubai Ranking points up for grabs.
Next week, the DP World Tour heads to Marco Simone Golf Club in Rome for the Italian Open. Marco Simone is also the site of this fall's Ryder Cup.
