Nordea Masters
5 June 2016

Matt secured his second European Tour title with a three-shot victory at the Nordea Masters.

After starting the week at Bro Hoff Slot GC with a 68, Matt took control of the tournament with Friday’s 65 and a 68 on Saturday ensured he took a four-shot lead into the final day.

Matt’s 71 was enough to secure a second European Tour win in just his 51st start, following up victory at last year’s British Masters at Woburn.

He now moves up to a career high of 32nd in the Official World Golf Rankings.

Matt said: “I’ll never forget my first win, but this is a special one for me as well. To win once, people might say that was lucky but to win twice and people might have a little bit more confidence in you. So it’s nice to back that up.

“It’s great to see some of those names on the trophy, like Nick Faldo, Lee Westwood, Luke Donald. It’s brilliant. I think I noticed Tony Jacklin’s name on there as well, and there’s some great foreign players as well, so I’m delighted. 

“I was just trying to stick to my game plan today, as I didn’t want to chase. Thought that would be silly of me to try and do that. I think the first time I was able to really relax was once I found the green on the 17th.”  

Matt now has a week off before heading to Oakmont for the US Open.
