“I knew if I could get out early and shoot a good score then that might put pressure on the other guys and give me a chance of the Claret Jug”. It was hard to know which of our Claret Jug winners last weekend said these prophetic words, but it’s congratulations to Stuart Fletcher and his pro partner, Marc Leishman.
Stuart shot a net 65 on Saturday morning, and Marc also fired a 65 in his final round at Birkdale. Their combined score of 130 put them two shots ahead of Mick Teeling and Sung-Hoon Kang, and three ahead of Nick Stewart and – really cleaning up on the prizes – Marc Leishman.
Surprisingly, @marcleish hasn’t yet tweeted about his triumph, but he does get an honourable mention elsewhere on Twitter.
