England international Gian-Marco Petrozzi holed a 50ft eagle putt to win the New South Wales Amateur in Australia on the 37th hole of the final.
“It feels absolutely great, especially the manner I did it in. To hole a putt like that and win was fabulous.”
“We ended up all square after 35 and on the last I managed to scrape a half,” said Petrozzi.“On the play-off hole I had 260 yards to the green and hit a three iron to about 50ft – and then managed to hole that 50-footer for an eagle to win.“I’d been down, it’s the end of a long trip and I was mentally tired and feeling almost beaten before I was beaten. But the golfing gods helped me out and I think I did deserve it in the end – and it was great to do it in that fashion.”
“The Australians can have the Ashes but not the NSW trophy!” he joked.
“It’s been a fantastic trip,” said Petrozzi, who is also the Welsh open champion. “I will never forget this.”
