Veteran McEvoy finally claims European Tour title

Veteran McEvoy finally claims European Tour title

Social media was quick to criticise DeChambeau for failing to give McEvoy the necessary credit for his win and fellow pro, Eddie Pepperell, took to Twitter to say, 'Has to be said, as far as classless handshakes go, that was a good'n!'

In those 17 years, McEvoy had won just two Challenge Tour titles until two weeks ago, one coming in 2017 and the other in 2005.

The group are chasing England's Richard McEvoy, who has put himself in with a chance of a long-awaited maiden European Tour title after an enthralling duel with playing partner Bryson DeChambeau after the third round. He won on his 285th European Tour appearance, 17 years after making his debut on the tour and just seven days after triumphing on the developmental European Challenge Tour.

This year's Memorial Tournament victor could do with a big performance as he bids to make an American Ryder Cup team that will have a few players who show their emotions on the course, with Patrick Reed and Bubba Watson sure to rile the European crowds in Paris from 28-30 September! "I'm a little bit lost for words".

McEvoy played alongside joint 54-hole leader Bryson DeChambeau in the final round. He then found sand on the eighth to drop into a share of the lead with DeChambeau at the turn after a two-shot swing and the field were closing in.

DeChambeau apologised to McEvoy "and the fans for my brevity on 18".

But while his illustrious American rivals faltered at Green Eagle, McEvoy's one-over-par 73 was enough to finish the tournament at 11 under, one stroke clear of Allen John, Christofer Blomstrand and Renato Paratore.

John, who is deaf, carded a five-under final round of 67, the best of the day.

Unlike McEvoy, DeChambeau was grateful for the stop in play.

"I fought hard, I believed, and even at the last I overpowered my caddie to lay it up to give myself the best opportunity to make birdie and I managed to do it", McEvoy said of his approach to the last.

Masters victor Patrick Reed also blew up in the final round.
