Moscow, Russia – Alexandre Kaleka posted a 2-under 70 on Sunday to come from behind and win the Russian Challenge Cup on the European Challenge Tour.
Kaleka finished at 7-under 281 and won by a single stroke at Tseleevo Golf & Polo Club. The victory was his second on the tour after he won the 2009 ALLIANZ EurOpen de Lyon.
Third-round leader Alessandro Tadini bogeyed the last to fall one short. He finished with a 1-over 73 and shared second place with Mark Tullo, who had a 3-under 69 on Sunday.
Kaleka appeared to be out of it after a double bogey at the par-5 15th. He managed to birdie the par-5 17th to get in at 7-under par, then waited for Tadini to finish.
Tadini had a rough path to the clubhouse and it cost him the tournament.
Tadini bogeyed 11, 12 and 14, but got a stroke back with a birdie at the 15th. He bogeyed 16, but birdied 17 to match Kaleka in the lead at 7-under par.
Tadini lost any chance of a playoff with a bogey at the last.
Joachim B. Hansen (68), Chris Doak (70) and Morten Orum Madsen (72) tied for fourth at minus-5.
