Welshman Stephen Dodd has won the 2016 Senior Italian Open by one shot from his countryman Phillip Price.

Dodd, 50, went into the final day nine under par with a two-shot lead on Price and carded a level par 71 in the final round at Golf Club Udine.

The three-time European Tour winner only made his Senior Tour debut at the Senior Open Championship in July.

"It's nice to get a win so early in my career on the Senior Tour. It's a big confidence boost for me," Dodd said.
