Pinner golfer Matt Wallace broke into the world’s top 25 for the first time after a stunning May period.
Wallace’s remarkable rise to prominence continued in the British Masters 2019 between May 9 and 12, where he came second in the tournament after just missing the chance to win it with a putt on the 18th hole.
The fact that Wallace, 29, was so frustrated to finish in an impressive runner-up spot to Marcus Kinhult showed how far he has come in recent years – but his month wasn’t over there.
Within hours of the Masters, he was on a plane to New York for the US PGA Championship in Bethpage, where again he impressed by finishing in a tie for third behind Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson.
His performance at Bethpage lifted him to a career-high 25th in the world rankings and Wallace told The Daily Mail: “It’s going in the right direction. I’m working hard for it, it’s not like it’s just come randomly.
“There’s more bits that I want to work on, there’s bits I want to improve at. There’s a long way to go for the rest of the year.”
