Thomas Pieters claimed his second European Tour title this week. just two weeks after winning his first, following a one-shot victory over the rest of the field at the KLM Open.

Spain’s Eduardo De La Riva tied in second place on -18 under with Fabrizio Zanotti, Eddie Pepperell and Morten Orum Madsen rounding up the top five.

Before Pieters’ first European Tour victory at the D+D Real Czech Masters at the end of August, he had previously gone 47 events without a win but he is now the youngest Belgian at the age of 23 and 229 days to record multiple European Tour victories. It was also the fifth Belgian victory on the tour in history.
