Matt Wallace won a fourth consecutive win in Vigevano Open
Historic win for Matt Wallace in Vigevano Open. The 26 year old player from England holed for eagle on the last hole to grab the trophy and sealed a three shot victory at -17 over France’s Franck Daux and Swiss Julien Clément who shot 59 during second round.
Wallace is the first player ever to have won a fourth consecutive event on Alps Tour.
Julien Clément and Matt Wallace were tie for the lead going into the last round and Wallace opened his round the best way with 2 birdies. His playing partner holed for birdie on the second as well but dropped two shots on the 5th and 6th. He never managed to put pressure on Wallace.
The threat could have come from France’s Franck Daux. He scored 64 but it was not enough to catch up with Wallace.
With this win, the Moor Park golfer now stretched to more than 16,700 points as a result of his latest triumph, with the top five at the end of the year securing a place on the Challenge Tour in 2017.
