MARBELLA, Spain (AP) -- Julien Quesne tied the course record with an 8-under 64 on Sunday to win the Andalucian Open for his first European Tour victory.

The 31-year-old birdied four of the final five holes to finish at 17 under, claiming victory by two strokes ahead of Italy's Matteo Manassero (68) on the Aloha course.

The win earned the Frenchman $219,590 and a one-year European Tour exemption.

Tournament host Miguel Angel Jimenez, who was looking to become the oldest winner on the European Tour at age 48, shot a 71 and finished at 11 under.
