Marcus Fraser wins on the European Tour after almost six years

Powered by National Club Golfer


Nearly six years after his last win the Australian eventually won by two over Soomin Lee despite being two behind the South Korean on the 16th tee.

Lee then double-bogeyed the 16th, where Fraser got up and down for par, and the Aussie stayed on level terms with a 10-footer at the next.

At the 72nd hole Lee made another six and Fraser had a near 20-footer to win which he drained. Lee missed a short one to drop into a share of second with Filipino Miguel Tabuena at 13 under.

Fraser signed for a bogey-free 68, he only dropped two shots all week, both on Friday.

What Fraser said: "In the back of my head I felt like I had a chance. He's quite young and it's a big thing to be leading a European Tour event with three or four holes to go.

"So I just tried to keep reminding myself to breathe and to play my own game and see what I could do. The last two putts were pretty unbelievable. I was pretty nervous on 17 and I don't know how I held onto the putter, just trying to stand over that one on the last, I was pretty nervous.

"I got to the Middle East and I think it was the three worst weeks of golf I've played in my career.I had some good practice when I went home, went back to absolute basics and tried to sort things out from the start and everything just fell into place as the week went on.”
