ARGENTINA’S Cesar Monasterio romped to a maiden victory at the English Senior Open in just his fifth start on the European Senior Tour on the weekend.
Having led by three shots overnight at Rockliffe Hall, County Durham, following a course record-equalling 63 on Saturday, the 50 year old cruised home with a final round 2-under 70 to finish on 14-under, five clear of England’s Barry Lane (70) and Scotland’s Andrew Oldcorn (67).
Monasterio was the second rookie in succession to win on the Senior Tour, after England’s Mark Davis took the Scottish Senior Open at St Andrews last week.
Peter Fowler again finished the best of the Aussies, closing with a 4-under 68 to finish on 5-under tied for 11th. Fowler is now 16th on the senior tour Order of Merit after playing in seven events this season.European Senior Tour Results
