Garcia hangs on for 2nd straight Euro win

SOTOGRANDE, Spain, Oct. 30 (UPI) -- Sergio Garcia managed an even-par 71 Sunday, hanging on for his second European Tour title in two weeks at the Andalucia Masters in Spain.

Garcia finished at 6-under-par 278, one stroke better than Spanish countryman Miguel Angel Jimenez, following up his win last week at the Castello Masters with another victory.

But while Garcia breezed to a 27-under mark in his previous outing, this weekend's going at Valderrama Golf Club was much tougher. He managed to par the last four holes, including an up-and-down from off the green at No. 18, to fend off Jimenez for the win.

The latter fired a 1-under 70. After trailing by three shots, Jimenez rallied with birdies on 16 and 17 to get within one, but parred the final hole, earning him sole possession of second place at minus-5.

Richie Ramsay grabbed third place with a 70, good for 4-under 280, while Shane Lowry fired a 4-under 67 to end alone in fourth at minus-3.
