Ezekiel Lau was elated to be speaking with Rosy Hodge after taking a huge win at the EDP Billabong Pro Cascais over Italo Ferreira. "I don't even know what to say," he said, still in shock. "I can't believe it, this is my first year I've ever made a heat here, so to be in the Final is already just a win."
The Hawaiian took home $40,000 and, more importantly, 10,000 precious Qualifying Series points, which lifts him 93 spots up the rankings to No. 12, just outside of the zone to requalify for the 2018 Championship Tour.
