What happened at the CIMB Classic?

After a five-year wait to win his second PGA Tour title, Marc Leishman has now won three in 18 months.

Leishman began the day in a three-way tie for the lead alongside Gary Woodland and Shubhankar Sharma, but the Australian carded four birdies on the bounce from the 2nd to peel away.

From there it was a procession.

Further gains came at 9, 10, 16 and 18, with a solitary bogey at the 13th for a final-round 65 and a five-shot victory and his fourth PGA Tour win.

Justin Thomas, the star name in the field, shot a round-of-the-day 64, but it was only enough to lift him into a tie for 5th – six shots behind Leishman and one behind the trio of Emiliano Grillo, Chesson Hadley and Bronson Burgoon all tied for 2nd.

Overnight co-leaders Woodland and Sharma carded final rounds of 71 and 72 respectively to drop back into a tie for 5th and 10th.

Pat Perez’s title defence wilted away. A final-round 74 left the American 22 shots off the pace at 4-under.

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.
