Golf – Omega Masters: Defending Champion Fitzpatrick Wins

Omega Masters

Britain’s Matthew Fitzpatrick successfully defended his title by asserting a 5th European Tour win, in the wake of pushing out Denmark’s Lucas Bjerregaard in a play-off during the Omega Masters in Switzerland.

Since Seve Ballesteros in 1978, Fitzpatrick turned into the 1st player to effectively protect the title at Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club.

After completing level with Bjerregaard at 17 under, the 24-year-old, Fitzpatrick birdied the principal play-off hole after 72 holes. Fitzpatrick shot a birdie at the last for a 67, as Bjerregaard checked a last cycle seven-under 63.

In the wake of carding a bogey-free third round of seven-under 63, the world number 44 had entered the last round with a two-shot lead over Lorenzo-Vera.
