YORK golfer Simon Dyson’s Barclays Singapore Open challenge faded on the final day at the Sentosa Golf Club.
The 34-year-old was tied for sixth place on five under par having played three holes of his third round in a storm hit tournament.
Uncharacteristically, Dyson carded five bogey fives in his first ten holes of the day and, despite two birdies, ended up with a three over par round of 74.
He managed four birdies in round four – at the fourth, 12th, 14th and 18th – but he also dropped four shots, bogeying the second, seventh, ninth and 13th.
The world number 63 earned 46,676 euros for his efforts.
The tournament was won by 19-year-old Italian Matteo Manassero, who beat South African Louis Oosthuizen with a 12-foot putt at the third play-off hole.
Meanwhile, 23-year-old Rory McIlroy stormed through to third place with a closing six-under-par 65 to become the European Tour’s youngest money list winner since Sandy Lyle in 1980.
