Brett Rumford held his nerve to clinch the Omega European Masters with a dramatic chip-in at the first extra hole after finishing 72 holes tied for the lead at 16 under par. Rumford recovered from a crooked teeshot to strike a fine iron to the back of the 18th green and then calmly chipped in from 30 foot to clinch the title with a birdie three. Rumford relied on a strong short game all week, and now can relax safe in the knowledge that he has next year's card safe, giving him a number of privileges and guaranteed entry into a number of different tournaments.
The Australian strode the fairways in a custom pair of FootJoy Classic Tour golf shoes and never looked like putting a foot out of place. Rumford's victory now takes FootJoy's win count to 25 this year on the European Tour alone, further underlining our position as the preferred shoe on golf's biggest stages.
