Pavan grabs 1-stroke win in Germany

The Sports NetworkJuly 7, 2013 

Andrea Pavan carded a 4-under 68 on Sunday to grab a 1-stroke victory at the Bad Griesbach Challenge Tour.

Pavan claimed his third Challenge Tour title at 19-under-par 269.

Fellow Italian Marco Crespi (66) finished in second at 18-under, while Knut Borsheim (68) and Victor Riu (72) shared third at 14-under 274.

Pavan reached the turn at 17-under for the tournament after recording birdies at the first, third and sixth around a bogey at the sixth.

After a pair of gains at the 11th and 12th moved him to 19-under, he was met atop the leaderboard when Crespi, who was playing in the group ahead of Pavan, poured in his ninth birdie of the day at the 17th.

But Pavan would also birdie the 17th to regain the outright lead and he held on for the win despite a bogey at the last as Crespi also dropped a shot at the final hole.
