Third-round leader Florian Fritsch carded a 3-under 68 during his final round at Golfclub Schloss Finkenstein to fall into a tie for fourth with Jake Roos (66) and Cyril Bouniol (69) at 16-under 268.

After trading a birdie at the ninth with a bogey at the 11th, the German rolled in birdies at the 13th and 15th to reach 19-under. He parred his final three holes to close out the victory.
