England’s Daniel Gavins overturned a seven-shot deficit to claim his first European Tour title at the World Invitational on Sunday, and Thailand’s Pajaree Anannarukarn recovered from a triple bogey to win the women's tournament after a playoff. Gavins carded a bogey-free, 5-under 65 in the final round at Ballymena to set the clubhouse target of 13-under par that none of the later starters proved able to match. Compatriot David Horsey (72) held a share of the lead until losing a ball on the 18th following a wild tee shot to finish a shot behind in second.
