* – Paul Waring defeated Thomas Aiken in a playoff

Nordea Masters Report

Paul Waring won for the very first time on the European Tour as he got the better of Thomas Aiken in a play-off at the Nordea Masters.

Waring and Aiken shared a three shot lead over the field heading into the final round at Hills Golf Club, and the two had a fascinating duel and couldn’t be separated in regulation play.

The Englishman made a brilliant par-save at the 17th and went to the 18th tee with a narrow one-shot lead, but his second shot to the par-5 18th settled up against the lip and he could only make par.

Aiken also found the greenside bunker in two, but his lie was much more favourable –  and an expert splash out and a five-footer for birdie forced the playoff.

Playing the 18th hole again, Waring split the fairway but Aiken flared his drive well right where it took one bounce and found the usually out-of-play water hazard.

And so when Waring hit a safe approach to the front of the green, the contest was all but over.

Aiken did have a chip for a par, but the 35-year-old missed to the right to leave Waring just a tap-in for his first triumph in over 200 professional starts.

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.
