George Bloor finally notched up his first win on the Portugal Pro Golf tour with a one-shot victory over Gary King, who had recently won at Pinheiros Altos.

Bloor’s first round of level par 72 put him in a solid position to attack the leaders headed by local hero João Carlota who carded a 3 under par 69, which given the extremely testing conditions was a tremendous effort.

On the final day, Bloor put together a very impressive bogey free round of 5 under par 67 to give him a well-deserved win over the highly experienced King, who kept snapping at his heels all day but could not catch the determined Bloor.
