Matt managed to compile a final round of -7 under par 64, for his winning total of -11 under par.
Before the hole out from the bunker on the last for a winning birdie, Matt spoke to his caddie;
“I said to Lance, ‘I‘m about due to make one of these. It was so cool to see that thing disappear at the end. I wasn’t too disappointed to end up in that front greenside bunker on eighteen.I knew it was a pretty easy up and down.”
Luke Donald, who started the day with a two shot lead, finished in second place at -10 under par, Matt had quite a wait watching to see if Luke could catch him and force a play-off. It did not happen, and thankfully broke Matt’s Sunday slumps. Luke shot himself in the foot when he drove his ball way left out of bounds on the sixth hole, and carded a double bogey 6. He then found water again on 10, resulting in a bogey. He was happy with the way he is progressing;
“I hit a lot of solid shots, a lot to build off and I’m excited about some of the changes I’ve been making.”
John Huh and Ben Martin tied for third place at -9 under par for the tournament.
