Swedish Marcus Kinhult has claimed his first European Tour title after beating English matt Wallace during the final hole of the British Masters. The two players were tired for 15 under for the last, but Wallace missed a 15 footer before Kinhult sunk his own 10 foot birdie for a final of 70.
England’s Eddie Pepperell finished along with Scotland and Wallace on 16 under with a six under of 66. Host Tommy Fleetwood finished the game tied for 10th place after his final round of 73. Kinhult, who had birdied for the last two holes where Wallace was only able to par, told reporters that he was speechless, and that he didn’t really know what had happened for the last two hours. He added that he was behind, and despite Wallace playing well, he managed to make the last two birdies. He continued, saying that there was a lot going through his mind at the time, but that he was happy to handle emotions well.
Wallace was visibility frustrated on a hot day in Southport by his failure to make more ground with his one shot lead going down 17, which came because of bogeys for Kinhult on 15 and 16. The 29 year old English player missed a four foot putt for birdie during the 17th, and his the 18th green with his putter after he missed to the right of the hole, which, if he had landed, would have seen him win the title.
