Thomas Levet of France carded a final round of 68 to hold off Fabrizio Zanotti and a charging Thomas Björn to win the Open de España at PGA Golf Catalunya in Girona.

The 40-year-old carried a two-shot advantage over England’s Stuart Davis into the final round but stumbled with two bogeys in the first four holes. But, the Frenchman rallied and three birdies in a row from the sixth hole saw him regain the advantage at the top of the leaderboard.

As Davis faltered, Björn gained ground with a back-nine charge that included four birdies and an eagle. But the Dane came up just shy and, when Levet birdied the 17th, he gave himself a comfortable advantage down the closing hole. He made a regulation par and picked up his fifth European Tour title plus a cheque for €333,330.
