Desert Classic Report

Adam Long started the day three shots back, but fired in a stunning round of 65 on the final day to win the Desert Classic by a shot and to claim his first victory on the PGA Tour.

After struggling to a 71 on Friday, Long had put himself back in contention with a 63 on Saturday – his second of the week. He started the day three shots behind Phil Mickelson, but manage to overhaul the five-time major champion by the end of play.

Mickelson could only finish in a tie for 2nd alongside Canada’s Adam Hadwin. Talor Gooch fired in the low round of the day, with his 64 seeing him climb the leaderboard to make it into the top five come the end of the Desert Classic.

Jon Rahm was the only other non-American to make the top ten, with the Spaniard coming home in 6th, five shots behind eventual winner Long.

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.
