A look back at the weather-affected Portugal Masters, where Alexander Levy claimed his second European Tour title of the season
Alexander Levy secured his second European Tour title following the abandonment of the Portugal Masters after 36 holes.
Inclement weather had already reduced the event to 54 holes and a series of further downpours on Sunday forced authorities to drawn curtains on the tournament.
At that point, Levy was three shots clear of Nicolas Colsaerts after bogey-free rounds of 64 and 61 took him to 18-under-par.
Colsaerts – who narrowly missed out on the European Tour’s first 59 on Thursday – took second place, finishing two shots clear of Chile’s Felipe Aguilar.
