First European Tour victory for Grant Forrest

A superb birdie-birdie finish for a 6-under par 66 gave Grant Forrest his first European Tour victory at the Hero Open at Fairmont, St Andrews.

Grant’s 10-under par third round gave him a share of the lead with fellow Scot Calum Hill. With Calum holding the upper hand over the early holes, everything changed around the turn as Grant moved ahead. His main challenge then came from England’s James Morrison who had a 9-under par final round, however Grant’s strong finish ensured the victory.

Calum Hill finished in a share for 4th place, and he was the first to congratulate Grant as he celebrated the win on the 18th green.
