Hamza expressed his joy at winning the championship again.
In Oberwaltersdorf, Austria, on Sunday, Pakistan’s Hamza Amin won the Austrian National Open Golf Championship after outdueling European Tour winner Martin Wiegele amid weather conditions.
Hamza won the competition by two strokes thanks to a string of birdies while carrying his famed father, Taimur Hassan.
Hamza, representing Rumanza Golf Club, triumphed with a spectacular back nine on Sunday, birdying holes 11, 13, 15, and 17, to win by two strokes with scores of 71, 70, 75, and 69 in testing circumstances.
“It’s an amazing feeling to win the Open again, especially with my father on the bag. We created history and will have this memory forever. I was playing well but didn’t have a good third round. Conditions were extremely difficult and the wind was blowing hard. Thankfully I birdied the 18th on Saturday to stay 2 behind and remain in the hunt. Psychologically that birdie gave me good momentum heading into the final round. The putter was cold all day but I told myself to stay patient and keep at it. That’s when I started holing putts and making birdies,” he told the media.
Taimur, the most well-known amateur golfer in Pakistan, was ecstatic.
“It was a wonderful experience to caddy for Hamza and be part of his victory. Great joy in the father and son combination,” he said.

With a participation of 151 players, this edition marked the tournament’s 49th year.
