Report

Justin Thomas showed his class over the course of the week to secure a runaway victory at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Thomas had the tournament on lock following the first three days, with rounds of 65-64-67 giving him a three-shot lead ahead of the final round.

All he needed was a 1-under-par round of 69 around the tough Championship Course at Firestone Country Club to take the title, his ninth on the PGA Tour.

The packed leaderboard behind him featured major winners, in Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day, and it was Johnson who fired the low round of the day.

McIlroy, along with Ian Poulter, were the two men sitting at 11-under and three back ahead of the final 18 holes. However, rounds of 73 and 74, respectively, saw the European pair slide down the leaderboard in the wrong direction.

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.
