Mauritius Open Report

American Kurt Kitayama secured his maiden European Tour title with a victory at the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open on Sunday afternoon.

He started the final day in Anahita in a share of the lead alongside South Africa’s Justin Harding. A solid 4-under-par round saw Kitayama pull away, and he would eventually win the title by two shots.

It is his first victory on the European Tour, and his second win of 2018, following a victory on the Asian Development Tour back in January.

Harding, meanwhile, could only muster a 1-under-par final round, seeing drop from a share of the lead, finishing the tournament in solo 4th.

France’s Victor Perez and India’s S. Chikkarangappa both leapfrogged the South African to finish joint 2nd, two shots behind Kitayama come the close of play on Sunday.

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.
