Grégory topped the leaderboard with a final round -4 under par 67, to win the ISPS Handa Wales Open at The Celtic Manor Resort. He was tied with overnight leader Peter Uihlein after 15 holes, and then struck a mighty blow with birdies on the last three holes, draining putts from 50, 15 and 30 feet, to make the title his;
“It was an amazing round, I made an amazing finish with three birdies in a row and I am so happy. I will remember the finish on this great course for a long time. A lot of great moments have been here, I was thinking about the Ryder Cup on the 18th so I am so proud to win this trophy.”
Shell shocked American Peter Uihlein had to settle for second place at -6 under par, having struggled to make full use of the three stroke advantage he held at the start of the day. His final round was a +1 over par 72. This is what he said after the round;
“Hats off to him, he played great. It was a tough day and he played fantastic.”
Soren Kjeldsen finished in third place at -5 under par with his final round of -5 under par 66.
