                JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (March 21, 2010) - Former ETSU men's golf All-American Rhys Davies (Bridgend, Wales) made history on Sunday, picking up his first career victory on the European Tour.

 

Firing a 7-under-par 66 in the final round of the Trophée Hasson II at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam in Morocco, Davies overcame Louis Oosthuizen's two-stroke lead during the final round to take the title. A three-time first-team All-American at ETSU, Davies is widely considered the best golfer to ever come through the Buccaneer program.

 

            After spending two seasons on the Asian Tour and Challenge Tour, Davies is certainly making the most of his first season on the European Tour. With three Top 6 finishes so far this year, Davies stands 12th on the European Tour's Money List (Race to Dubai). Davies won over $310,000 with the victory Sunday.

 

This was the first time a former ETSU player has won on the European Tour, and it now means past Buccaneer golfers have won tournaments on each of the major professional tours.
