Thomas Pieters wins KLM Open for 2nd European Tour title

ZANDVOORT, Netherlands (AP) Thomas Pieters of Belgium won his second European Tour title Sunday, two weeks after his first, by shooting a 5-under 65 to win the KLM Open by one shot as Lee Slattery faltered on the final hole.

The 23-year-old Pieters, who won the Czech Masters on Aug. 30, parred the last four holes at the Kennemer Golf and Country Club to finish with a 19-under total of 261.

Slattery, the joint overnight leader who was trying to win back-to-back tournaments after taking last week's Russian Open, had only one bogey all day - but it came on the 18th when a par would have forced a playoff with Pieters.

Eduardo De La Riva of Spain tied Slattery for second after a 63, one shot ahead of Fabrizio Zanotti of Paraguay (63).
