Haydn Porteous, South Africa, prevails in Prague, winning the Czech Masters at Albatross Golf Resort.
Haydn carded a -3 under par 69 to win the Czech Masters, with a -13 under par total, a two shot winning margin, his second European Tour victory;
“It’s been a really torrid time through the last eight, nine months and I’ve really started doing the right things and slowly but surely the golf has got a little bit better.”.
“To get my second European Tour win under the belt just feels amazing.”
“When you start playing on the European Tour you start to lose yourself, you lose how you got out here in the first place and to then find yourself again and do the things you do to normally get on the Tour is key.”
“It’s just one tournament at a time, one shot at a time and just make sure I do the right things and be professional in the way I do everything.”
“I’m sure this evening’s probably not going to be the most professional moment of my life but there’s nothing wrong with having a bit of celebration.”
Tournament leader at the start of play Lee Slattery, from England, fell back in the final round signing for a sad +1 over par 73, and had to settle for second place at -11 under par, poor putting was the culprit;
“Obviously bitterly disappointed to have lost but Haydn is a good friend so it always makes it a little easier.”
“I putted well the first few days and today it just let me down a bit.”
Sharing third place at -10 under par were Tom Lewis, England, -5 under 67, the low round of the day, and Pontus Widegren, Sweden, returning -2 under 70 today.
Tom was happy to be bogey free today;
“I’m pleased. If someone said ten under at the beginning of the week, I would have taken it.”
“I played solidly today, I don’t think I dropped a shot and I would have happily taken a Sunday without dropping a shot.”
Pontus was happy with his putter;
“I made some good putts coming down the stretch for pars and made a fantastic one on 18. I liked it a lot, it’s what you practice for.”
