Andrea Pavan overcame three-time Major champion Padraig Harrington in an enthralling final-day battle to win his first European Tour title at the D+D Real Czech Masters.
The duo entered round four at Albatross Golf Resort in a share for the lead but Harrington looked set for European Tour win number 16 when he opened up a three-shot lead at the turn.

Pavan had other ideas, however, coming home in 31 to sign for a 67 and beat his Irish rival by two shots.
The Italian's 22 under par total set a new record for the event, eclipsing Thomas Pieters' winning score from 2015 by two strokes.
Malaysia's Gavin Green matched Harrington with a closing 69 to finish at 17 under, two shots clear of Scotland's Scott Jamieson and Englishman Lee Slattery.

Pavan won the Challenge Tour Rankings in 2013 having finished second in 2011 and now has a European Tour title to add to his four on that circuit.
He came through the Qualifying School in November and enters the winner's circle in his 112th event, making it three Italian wins in 2018 after Francesco Molinari's triumphs at the BMW PGA Championship and Open Championship.
“It's amazing, it's massive,” he said. “I've won four times on the Challenge Tour but it was a long time ago. I'll enjoy this one because it's really hard to get and I'll just keep working on the stuff that seems to be working and enjoy the success.
“I'm going back home tomorrow and we're having a second baby, a little girl is coming on Wednesday. We're really excited about that and I can't wait to celebrate with my family.”

Harrington found sand off the first tee and was forced to lay up but got up and down, holing from around 15 feet to lead on his own.
Pavan dropped a shot on the second and with Harrington saving par after a ragged tee-shot, the lead was two shots.
The Ryder Cup Vice Captain hit a bunker shot to two feet for another birdie on the sixth, while Pavan made his first gain of the day from eight feet to stay within two.
Harrington then made the most of the par five ninth after laying up to stretch his advantage to three with nine to play.
Pavan had missed a good chance on the ninth but the next two par fives brought him more joy, with an excellent bunker shot on the tenth and a smart approach to the 12th cutting the gap back to one shot.

Harrington responded in stunning fashion, almost making a hole-in-one on the par three 13th and tapping in to re-establish a cushion.
But Pavan would not be left behind, putting an approach to six feet for a birdie on the 14th and when Harrington bogeyed the next after getting in trouble off the tee, there was a tie at the top.
The 29 year old only just cleared the water off the tee at the par three 16th but rolled home a 25-footer from the fringe and he held the solo lead for the first time all day with two to play.
A 15-foot putt on the 17th brought another birdie and a par on the last prompted jubilant celebrations on the 18th green.
“Padraig has got so much experience, such a great player and he played lovely,” added Pavan. “The putt on 16 was massive. It could have easily gone both ways, he was ahead of me most of the day but after I got ahead I stayed aggressive.”
Green had started with seven pars in a row but an excellent approach into the eighth sparked a hat-trick of birdies before he finished with another eight pars.
Slattery made five birdies and a single bogey in a 68, while Jamieson also had one dropped shot to go with three gains in a 70.
England's Tom Lewis put himself in contention with six birdies in 13 holes but found water on the 16th for a double-bogey as he finished eight back.
Fiji International presented by Fiji Airways champion Gaganjeet Bhullar and South African Jacques Kruyswijk finished 13 under, a shot clear of a group of nine players including Ryder Cup hopefuls Eddie Pepperell and Thomas Pieters.
