Madrid Masters

Ross McGowan won the event, but he managed to make it interesting in the final round. He started out with a huge lead but only managed a one under par final round. It was enough though to secure the win over second place Mikko Ilonen. Gareth Maybin shot -8 today and moved up 22 spots to finish tied for 4th. As for the Spaniards: Ignacio Garrido, Jorge Campillo and Miguel Angel Jimenez finished in the top ten. Sergio couldn't get anything going in the final two rounds and ended up T17. And Jose Maria Olazabal managed to finish the tournament tied for 53rd. Not bad for someone who doesn't play all that often these days. Hope he can build on this week and do better in the future.

A little bit of trivia: Stan Utley, the putting guy, played the first two rounds of this event. He didn't do well. He's down at the bottom of the leaderboard.
