Fabrizio Zanotti finished birdie, eagle to sign for a final round 63 as he clinched victory in the Maybank Championship in Malaysia over American and fellow TaylorMade stable mate David Lipsky.
Starting the day 6 shots adrift, Zanotti made his way through the field, armed the all-new 2017 M1 440 Driver. The final round 63 secured victory for Zanotti as David Lipsky, who had held the lead for most of the back nine had to settle for par on the 72nd. Playing with the all-new 2017 M2 Driver, Lipsky finished 1 shot adrift of Zanotti, securing a TaylorMade 1-2. This win came in only his second start at the Maybank Championship and is his 4th career win as a professional. Zanotti has now secured his European Tour card until the end of 2019.
