What happened at the DP World Tour Championship?

Danny Willett won his first title since slipping on the Green Jacket at Augusta in 2016.

But he didn’t half make us sweat!

With a two-shot lead standing on the 18th tee, Willett pushed his drive right, hopped off the side of the fairway and nestled against the rocks of the brook that meanders its way up to the green. One rotation more and the ball was wet.

From there he got down for par to seal a two-shot victory at 18-under.

Matt Wallace made a charge with a 4-under 68 to get to 16-under, but it was only good enough for a runner-up spot, while Willett’s playing partner and current Masters champion Patrick Reed’s charge ended with bogey at 17 and he shared 2nd with Wallace.

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.
