Wallace Wins Four-Way Play-Off in Made in Denmark

 Published on: 12th September 2018   |   By: Dean Shaw   |   Category: Uncategorized

Moor Park golfer Matt Wallace is celebrating after winning his fourth title in less than 12 months on the European Tour.

The Pinner favourite took the crown at the Made in Denmark event on 2 September after he birdied five of his final six shots which led to him reaching 19 under and found himself in a play-off with 3 fellow brits; Lee Westwood, Jonathan Thomson and Steve Brown.

Westwood and Thomson were eliminated first, leaving Wallace and Brown playing against one another. As they returned to the 18th hole for the third time, Wallace hit yet another birdie and claimed his third win of the season.

Wallace has been a member at Moor Park Golf Club for four years now and has had a large support from all the staff and members, who have witnessed him grow over his time with the club.

With Ryder Cup Captain, Thomas Bjorn, watching his latest win, it was thought Wallace had a strong chance of being picked for this year’s team. Unfortunately, Matt missed out this time with Sergio Garcia, Ian Poulter, Paul Casey and Henrik Stenson being chosen as Bjorn’s wildcards.

Amy Yeates, CEO at Matts’ home course, Moor Park Golf Club, stated “Matt has come on leaps and bounds in the past 12 months and we, as a club, are immensely proud of how far he has come. Although he missed out on the Ryder Cup team this time, there is no stopping Matt from achieving his goals and we are excited to see where he goes next”.
