Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship Report

Shane Lowry came through a nervy final round to win the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship – his first victory in a Rolex Series event, and his first win on the European Tour since 2019.

The Irishman had put together three sumptuous rounds of golf to hold a comfortable lead going into Sunday. He was three shots clear of Richard Sterne going into the final 18 holes, but it got much closer than that.

Sterne would eventually finish just a shot back from the Irishman, who secured the win with a final score of 18-under-par.

An incredible final round of 7-under saw Dutchman Joost Luiten move up into 3rd, while the in-form Louis Oosthuizen secured his third top-ten in as many events.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
