Ricardo Santos wins Madeira Open

Ricardo Santos became the first Portuguese-born player to win on home soil by capturing the Madeira Islands Open.

Santos shot a sensational final round 63 to win by four strokes and set a new championship record of 22 under par on the Santa da Serra course, ahead of Swede Magnus Carlsson (67).

Victory earns Santos, a former Challenge Tour graduate, a one-year European Tour exemption as well as entry to the upcoming PGA Championship at Wentworth.
