James Morrison didn’t want to give up his Spanish Open title lightly……and performed great to finish 4th around the very mentally demanding Valderrama. In fact, there were some fine finishes from Ross Fisher (tied 6th), Richard Bland (tied 11th) and Graeme Storm and Peter Uihlein both making the cut. With +1 winning the tournament, this was the nearest thing to a US Open setup I’ve ever seen in Europe. Such a mental challenge!!
Then we all went to China. Always a challenge with the jetlag and culture change…..but you have to embrace this. Lee Slattery did by finishing 4th in an event that was plagued by poor weather and a Monday finish. I honestly believe that if we hadn’t got rained off on Sunday Slatts would have won it as he had the momentum! Ross Fisher and Richard Bland finished 16th and 19th respectively
