A final round of even par 72 was good enough to give Eddie a wire to wire win at the British Masters with a -9 under par total, in wet conditions;
“It’s brilliant, I said yesterday I wouldn’t know how it felt being in the lead at this event as opposed to another one but now that I’ve won it, it does feel special.”
“The crowds are great, I’ve had some great local support around a beautiful golf course, one I’ve played a lot as a junior and an amateur.”
“So to come and win this event is really special.”
“It was such a tough day with the conditions. I didn’t swing it very well from the get-go and it was really hard then to find it.”
“It was an absolute grind for four or five hours. It just shows how important it is to build a lead when things are going well for you.”
“I’m delighted to go wire-to-wire, especially at this event, I’m over the moon.”
Alexander Björk , Sweden was second at -7 under par, with a final round -1 under 71.
Tied in third place at -5 under par were Lucas Herbert, Australia, -3 under 69 today and Jordan Smith of England with a last round +1 over par 73.
