Slattery bounces back to win Russian Open title

MOSCOW — Lee Slattery bounced back from an erratic start to shoot a 2-under 69 Sunday that was enough for a one-shot victory at the Russian Open.

The Englishman entered the final round with the lead but two bogeys on the front nine left him temporarily two shots behind Argentina’s Estanislao Goya. However, Slattery birdied three of his last eight holes, including a chip in from the rough on the 17th, while Goya bogeyed the 13th and 15th. Slattery finished with a 15-under total of 269 as he secured his second career European Tour win, and first since 2011.

Goya was second after a 68, with defending champion David Horsey (68) another shot back in third.
