Matteo Manassero Wins the Malaysian Open


Well done to 17 year old wonder kid Matteo Manassero for winning the Malaysian open golf tournament with a score of 16 under par by one stroke from Gregory Bourdy with Rory McIlroy 1 stroke further back at -14. Manassero, who is 18 on Tuesday led after day 3 and there were plenty of players in the mix who could have won on the back 9 on the final day, including McIlroy, who seems to have quickly forgotten his Masters meltdown from last week.

The weather conditions were a bit of a struggle over the 4 days with delays and players finishing their 3rd round on the 4th day but a round of 68 including a great eagle 3 at the 10th, enabled Manassero to be the youngest golfer to win the tournament.

A great birthday present for the young golfer who turns 18 on Tuesday.
