Ballyclare's Gareth Maybin carded a fine closing five-under-par round of 67 to finish joint seventh in the Spanish Open in Seville.

Maybin had been in 25th place going into the final day and was still three over halfway through his final round.

However, he rattled off five successive birdies from the 13th to end on a two-under-par total of 286.

Francesco Molinari won the tournament by three shots on seven under.

Ireland's Peter Lawrie finished with a disappointing 73 to leave him on level par overall while Simon Thornton was four over.
