Matt Fitzpatrick knew how to be patient to go for the victory at the very end of the day in Valderrama this Sunday, within the framework of the Andalucia Masters. The Englishman, who returned a card of 69 in this last round, had 15 consecutive pars before making two birdies at 16 and 17 and then finishing with a final par. The tournament shifted to the last three holes.
Leader since the start of the day, Sebastian Soderberg cracked at 17 by putting his face-off in the bushes and losing his ball. The Swede had to save the bogey and has the putt to do so but missed too much to the left and conceded the double.
