Richard McEvoy of England wins his maiden European Tour title the Porsche European Open at Green Eagle Golf Courses in Germany.
Richard carded a final round +1 over par 73 to win the Porsche European Open, his maiden Tour victory, with a -11 under par total;
“It’s incredible, I’ve waited a long time, 17 years as a pro on and off the Tour.”
“I’m absolutely over the moon. A lot of hard work, a lot of bad years, a lot of good years but it’s never quite happened and it was my time on that 18th green today.”
“I fought hard, I believed, and even at the last I overpowered my caddie to lay it up to give myself the best opportunity to make birdie and I managed to do it.”
“It started a couple of weeks ago, I played a pro-am at Queenwood and shot 64 – a course record, and beat the likes of Rory, Justin Rose, Adam Scott and a few other boys and that was the start of the confidence kick, really.”
“Last week was obviously another boost to the confidence and I’ve come good again this week.”
One shot back, at -10 under were amateur player Allen John, Germany, -5 under 67 today, Christofer Blomstrand, Sweden, -4 under 68, and Renato Paratore, Italy with a last round -2 under 70.
Congratulations Richard, you are a winner, you never gave up, a triumph at the 285th attempt.
