BROBERG MASTERS LAKE MALAREN FOR MAIDEN WIN

American Patrick Reed falls just short in dramatic play off

Kristoffer Broberg claimed his first European Tour title at the BMW Masters with a dramatic play-off victory over Patrick Reed.

The Swede came into the final round two shots off the lead but turned in 33 to hold a share of top spot and a single birdie on the back nine got him to 17 under.

Playing partner Reed had been off the pace but picked up four shots in four holes from the 13th, including a spectacular eagle on the 15th, to move into the box seat and take a one shot lead onto the 17th tee.

But he dropped a shot on the 17th and as the chasing pack failed to close in, the leading duo parred the last to send the tournament to a two man play-off up the 18th.

Reed put his second shot into the bunker and although he played an excellent recovery for par, he could only watch on as Broberg rolled in a 15-foot putt down the hill to add a European Tour title to his four Challenge Tour triumphs.

That’s a dream come true. I’ve worked so hard all my life for this, said Kristoffer Broberg

“I didn’t trust myself, a few weeks ago; I could never win here. I was just so down, and I’m so happy right now.

“When I won on The Challenge Tour - once in a play-off in Norway - the players out there are really, really good and this field is just a really good field.

“So I’m just happy to beat all of them. This means a lot to me.”

Broberg was full of praise for Reed, who pushed the 29 year old all the way before eventually succumbing on the 18th green.

“His short game was unbelievable all day,” he said. “I’m playing really good the front nine and I was struggling a bit, a little nervous on the last few holes. The four last holes I was really, really nervous.

“I get to the play-off and I saw him hit it right. And I hit it a really good drive on the left side and thought, ‘here is my chance, I want to get by the trap’.

“I hit a good nine iron up to four or five metres from the hole and was so happy.”

The third event of The Final Series went to a play-off for the second consecutive season following Marcel Siem’s dramatic chip-in win last year and the closing round was full of drama once again.
