Aaron Roy’s biggest win of his career at the Scottish Open was marked by Tommy Fleetwood’s painful play – off moment.
Fleetwood, who built a marvelous bird in the 72nd hole to lead to a sudden death with Roy, was a favorite to win at the Renaissance Club in East Lothian. That meaning was accepted because a pot of bunker rye was found in the tea when replayed on the 18th.
Fleetwood, who left before a birdcage on the 16th, echoes the key moment of this $ 7 million championship, without being cruel to Roy, what kind of moment to experience. Fleetwood saw a five-foot putt for four slides, thereby handing over the trophy to Roy. “I’m not happy to see that,” Roy acknowledged Fleetwood’s deviation.
“I hit a poor putt, and that’s the end of it,” Fleetwood said. “It was Aaron’s time and Aaron’s week. Congratulations to him. This is frustrating. Of course you always look at the positives, but I messed up in the first play-off hole, and that’s it. ”
The last round of Roy’s 64 round under 11, he had no reason for Fleetwood; This is the best performance of one of the marquee events of the European Tour. “It’s an incredible feeling,” he said. “In short, it’s very difficult for me.” A week ago, Roy missed the play-offs at the Irish Open.
The problem of fleetwood in greens was already clear. “It costs me a whole week,” he said. But for that he would have won the Scottish Open during regulation. The 29-year-old Southport man, who will take part in the PGA Championships in Wentworth from Thursday, has at least some time to compete in Scotland.
Roy was most notable for wearing two gloves while playing. The 25-year-old from Wolverhampton, who is of Indian and Kenyan descent, is now in the top 100 in the world. He has a fair chance of winning the merit order of the European Tour.
Robert Rock finally made the bogey and finished third in the 10-under para. Ian Poulter’s last round finished 70th. On the 13th, Poulter said he was “devastated” and “shocked” after the double bogey denied him a successful shot.
Padreig Harrington, captain of the Ryder Cup in Europe, showed that his competitive juices flowed freely for the ninth-placed 67 with 67 runs. Lee Westwood, who started his challenge with 62 runs in the first round, split 19 in five under-pars.
