Matt Fitzpatrick makes the British Masters title his at Woburn Golf Club in England.
Matt had a final round -3 under par 68 to win the British Masters with a -15 under par total, and a two shot winning margin from the chasing pack. This is his maiden European Tour win, a great day that he will remember forever;
“It’s not going to sink in for a long time, I know that.”
“It was a long day and I didn’t really know what I had to do to win but I just sort of ground it out and managed to win. A great day”
“The fans have just been incredible to me and unbelievably supportive and I can’t tell everyone how appreciative I am of that.”
“Walking down every hole it’s, ‘Come on Matt’ and it’s amazing to have that support.”
Tied in second place at -13 under par were Søren Kjeldsen, and Fabrizio Zanotti, both -2 under today, and Shane Lowry who climbed up the leaderboard with-4 under 67.
Søren had his chances dashed when he three-putted on the par five 15th, and followed that with a bogey on the 16th.
Shane dropped a shot on the 219 yard par three 14th, while Fabrizio carded back-to-back bogeys on 13 and 14.
Luke Donald finished in a four-way tie for fifth at -11 under par, along with Kiradech Aphibarnrat, Mike Lorenzo-Vera and Marcus Fraser.
Oliver Fisher and Tommy Fleetwood both carded last rounds of -6 under par 65, sharing ninth position with a whole bunch of players.
Graeme McDowell had a remarkable last round, shooting +1 over par 72 , which included an Eagle, four birdies, four bogeys and a triple bogey.
Tournament host Ian Poulter also had a final round +1 over 72 and finished way down the pack. I wonder if the responsibility of hosting left him unable to concentrate on his golf.
