Simon Dyson's challenge fades on final day at Singapore Open

First published in Sport

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.

However, 33 holes on the final day proved too much for the Malton & Norton Golf Club ace, who finished in a tie for 24th place on two under for the 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.
