Czech Masters Report

Andrea Pavan clinched his first victory on the European Tour after an epic final-round clash with Padraig Harrington at the Czech Masters.

Pavan produced his Sunday best with five birdies on the back nine, which saw him card a 5-under-par 67 to claim a two-stroke victory on 22-under.

Harrington started the day tied for the lead and the three-time major champion made the first move and birdied his opening hole, adding further gains at the 6th and 9th.

Looking for his first win since the 2016 Portugal Masters, Harrington held a two-stroke lead on the 15th tee, before missing a short par save which left him tied with Italian Pavan.

Already a four-time champion on the Challenge Tour, Pavan had the Irishman in his sights on the par-3 16th. A 160-yard carry with water lingering short of the green, Pavan’s wedge just made it and he took the lead outright when he drained the 25-foot birdie putt.

It took the 29-year-old three rounds to unlock the secret of the 17th – the hardest hole on the course, playing 4.28. Pavan holed another lengthy effort to post back-to-back birdies and his 5th in 8 holes, putting him two ahead.

In his 112th start on the European Tour, the former Italian amateur champion, Pavan played the 18th safely and left himself a two footer for victory.

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.
