Day 4:

After seventeen years on tour Richie has finally won a major tour event.

He was cheered on throughout the day by members gathered at the club, cheers changed to groans and then cheers again as he went from leader to 2nd then back again.

With two holes to go he was in the lead again on his own. Every one held their breath as a perfect chip on the 17th just failed to gather down the hill and he dropped a shot to go back into a four way lead. A play-off beckoned but a sensible lay up on the par five eighteenth led to a solid pitch leaving him a sixteen foot put for the win. He took his time and then putted the ball firmly into the centre of the hole for the winning total of -11.

The win gained him his exemption for the main tour and a very good pay day.

What a wonderful run over the past couple of weeks. No-one has ever had back to back wins from Challenge Tour to European Tour, so well done Richie it couldn't have happened to a nicer chap.

Day 3:

Another very good day for Richie as he put together a 3 under round of 69 to join his American playing partner Bryson DeChambeau at 12 under for the tournament. Four birdies and only one bogey for the day.

It was a difficult day for golf with play being suspended for a for two or three hours in the middle of his round but Richie was able to keep his concentration and heads into the final round tomorrow in very good shape.

Day 2:

Today's round included 6 birdies and an eagle at the last. With only one bogey he finished at an amazing 7 under for the day and 9 under for the championship, laying in 2nd place going into day three.

Day 1:

Richie opened his account this morning with a fine 2 under 70. His round included five birdies and three bogeys.

The event is being held at the Green Eagle Golf Courses, North Course, just outside Hamburg and is sponsored by the German car makers Porsche.

Matt:

Is taking a break for three weeks for a well earned rest.
