Made in Denmark Report

Matt Wallace was the man to come through an all-English four-man playoff at the Made in Denmark to secure his third title of the 2018 European Tour season.

Wallace started the final day at Silkeborg Ry Golf Club two shots behind overnight leader Lee Westwood, and struggled throughout the middle part of his round.

He remained at -14 with six to play, but made five late birdies, including three 3s to finish his round. That pushed him up to 19-under, what would eventually be the playoff score.

Westwood also finished at 19, with Steven Brown and Jon Thomson making it an English quartet who would do battle in extra holes in Aarhus.

The former World No 1 would drop out of the playoff after failing to match birdie on the first extra hole. Thomson would also drop, with Wallace and Brown headed down a 74th hole.

Eventually, it would be Wallace that would take victory, with yet another birdie – making it seven in his last eight holes of the tournament. The victory is his third of the European Tour season and his fourth on the tour.

South African Erik van Rooyen put it one of the low rounds of the day – a final day 65, to climb into the top five. Meanwhile, Belgium’s Thomas Detry could only manage a 1-under 71 on the final day. He started Sunday’s play just one back from Westwood, but finished three outside the playoff.

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.
