Report

Brandon Stone secured the biggest victory of his career at the Scottish Open after he caught fire in the final round at Gullane, as he missed out on the first 59 in European Tour history with an eight-foot birdie miss at the final green.

It was an incredibly packed leaderboard in the early stages of Sunday, but the South African backed up a front-nine 31 by making a further four birdies and an eagle on the final nine to set an unassailable 20-under-par total.

Eddie Pepperell appeared to be the most likely to challenge Stone, but the Englishman three-putted the 17th green to hand the advantage to Stone.

When Stone made a huge left-to-right breaking putt for eagle on the 16th, the 25-year-old could play the final two holes in relative comfort – needing just one birdie to shoot the coveted sub-60 round.

His approach to the final green landed safely on the front and ran up to no more than eight-feet for a birdie and a bid at making history – the resulting putt missed, agonisingly, on the left edge.

With the clubhouse target set, there were still another six groups out on the course, but nobody could even come close.

Pepperell secured solo second, while Luke List, Trevor Immelman and Jens Dantorp rounded off the top-five.

Defending Gullane champion Rickie Fowler finished tied for sixth.

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.
