Italy's Guido Migliozzi was untouchable in the finals of the Belgian Knockout, shooting 3 under par to win by four strokes.

ANTWERP, Belgium -- Guido Migliozzi claimed his second European Tour win of the season with a four-shot victory over Darius van Driel in the final of the Belgian Knockout.

The Italian came through the Qualifying School in November and now has two victories in just 20 events after his triumph at the Magical Kenya Open in March.

He laid down a marker on day four at Rinkven International Golf Club with a win over Bernd Wiesberger in his quarter-final and then defeated Scotsman Ewen Ferguson in the last four.

Van Driel beat Matthew Southgate and Grégory Havret en route to the final on Sunday in Antwerp, but the Dutchman could not match Migliozzi's 3-under-par total.

Ferguson beat Havret by four shots in the third-place match.

In the second staging of this event with its innovative format, Migliozzi finished in a tie for fifth in Section A after 36 holes of stroke play and then beat Pedro Oriol, defending champion Adrian Otaegui and David Law in his first three knockout matches over nine holes of medal match play.

The victory moves Migliozzi to 21st on the Race to Dubai Rankings Presented by Rolex, into the top 100 on the Official World Golf Ranking and makes him the second 2018 Q School graduate to win twice on the 2019 Race to Dubai, joining Kurt Kitayama.
