Golf fans love when a world-class player makes a dramatic comeback to win a prestigious title, which is exactly what happened when Tommy Fleetwood defeated Marcus Kinhult in a sudden-death playoff. Starting the day six shots behind 54-hole leader Zander Lomard, Fleetwoodstarted out hot with birdies on the 2nd, 5th, and 6th holes, and added an eagle at the par-5 9th for a front-9 31 to vault into contention. Tommy added another eagle on the 10th, but gave both strokes back with bogeys on the 11th and 12th. Remarkably, he would add another eagle on the 14th and a birdie on the 15th, but a bogey on the 16th would tie him with Marcus Kinhult. After pars on the final two holes, Fleetwood and Kinhult would return to the 18th, and the latter's bogey gave Tommy Fleetwood his first European Tour victory in nearly two years. His win also propelled him into the number two spot in the Race to Dubai standings with only one event remaining.
Next week, the Race to Dubai will crown achampion at the DP World Tour Championship.
