Fitzpatrick in the best spot


Last year's winner Matthew Fitzpatrick is in pole position before the final round of the Omega European Masters. The 24-year-old Englishman leads two shots ahead of the surprising Frenchman Mike Lorenzo-Vera.

This year's event in Crans-Montana has the potential to make a nice story to tell. If he wins the prize money of 2.5 million euro, Matthew Fitzpatrick would be the first defending champion on the Haut-Plateau in 40 years. The player who managed the double victory in the tournament history is Severiano Ballesteros.

Matthew Fitzpatrick completed the second and third rounds with a score of 64 and 63, respectively. It seemed as if the young man from Sheffield wanted to prove the Europe's Captain Thomas Björn that it was a mistake not to have him for the Ryder Cup in Paris at the end of September.

On Saturday, Lee Westwood also performed at his best. He brought a score of 66 to the clubhouse. Slightly behind in the first two rounds, the 1999 OEM winner will most probably not be considered for another win here in Crans-Montana.

The second world-class golfer from Sheffield, Danny Willett did not deliver his best today. Finishing in the top 5 yesterday, he finished with a miserable score of 79, which threw him far down in the rankings.
