Lucas carded -5 under par 67 in the final round to win the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship by one stroke at -15 under from Tommy Fleetwood and Tyrrell Hatton of England.

Lucas did not think he would win it today;

“I’m getting a little emotional, it’s been a great year and now it’s just a whole lot better.”

“It didn’t really look like I was ever in it today, it looked like Tyrrell was going to take off with it.”

“I was trucking away at it. I’ve been playing well for a little while and I played really well today and I’m really pleased that it was enough.”

It was a shotgun start, 0830 and 0840, due to the high winds expected, with the leading two groups overnight going off the first.

Tommy was -3 under 69, while Tyrrell, who looked certain for a while, 32 on the front nine, to join Nick Faldo, Colin Montgomerie, Tiger Woods and Ernie Els with wins in the same event in three consecutive seasons, but he ended up with a round of even par 72, to join Tommy with a -14 under par total. 

A disappointed Tyrrell was looking for positives;

“There’s positives, obviously finishing second is a good effort.”

“I tried my best to win it again. It would have been pretty special to have three in a row, didn’t work out, wasn’t meant to be.

“I started off well, scoring pretty well the front nine considering conditions were quite tough. Then just the momentum completely went after the tee-shot on ten.”

“I guess my putt on the last to get in the play-off sums it up, really. Just a massive gust of wind knocks me off, pretty much lose balance on a putt, which is unfortunate.”

“I’m pretty disappointed because I had a five-shot lead at one point. It was in my hands.”

Tommy knew he had a chance to win;

“It was nice coming down the stretch with a chance to win. I played some really good golf and fell just short. There was a lot of good stuff.”
