Kristoffer Broberg of Sweden wins the Dutch Open at Bernardus Golf Club in The Netherlands.
Kris had a nervous even par last round of 72 to win the Dutch Open by three shots at -23 under;
“It feels good. I broke down on the 18th but it’s been six years of hell. Three different surgeries on my left side but now I’m starting to get back where I’m supposed to be.”
“The first few days I played really good. Today I was struggling like I was in the off season. I thought my eight shot lead would be enough today, but Matthias played some really beautiful golf.”
“It’s been a nightmare over the last six years, I was so close to quitting, it’s been so, I don’t know the word for it, but it’s been a tough time.”
“It’s going to be a game changer. I’ll get into bigger events and can plan my schedule a little bit. Before this I was at home for a month. I didn’t know where the game was, but it was good enough.”
Matthias Schmid, Germany, claimed second place at -20 under after spirited chase down of the leader, carding a final round -6 under par 66;
“It’s been quite a journey the last four days, I struck it beautifully and gave it a run and see where I’m at.”
“In the end, I fell just a couple of shots short.”
Alejandro Cañizares of Spain was third at -18 under par, with a last round -4 under par 68.
