International Golf Success for ex Aldenham Pupil
Many congratulations to Matt Wallace (Leeman's House 2002-08) in winning the Indian Open golf tournament this weekend. This is the second win for Matt on the European Tour in the last year and cements his place as one of Europe’s top players. A wonderful achievement for one of our very top sports scholars.
Matt won his second European Tour event beating Beef Johnston in a playoff. Matt almost won at the 72nd hole when he hit a huge second shot over the water to the 18th green but then sadly 3-putted so a playoff with Beef ensued. They played the 18th again and Beef laid up with his second shot so was 3 on the green. Matt then sent another big shot on to the green just 15 feet from the hole. Beef then went for his birdie but lipped the hole so ended with a par and left Matt with 2 shots for an epic win.
Fantastic, well done Matt.
