Tullamore’s Stuart Grehan made a final round surge at the GLAL.UK Worcestershire Masters on the PGA EuroPro Tour but would ultimately come up just short at Vale Golf & Country Club.
Grehan finished his tournament with three birdies and one bogey in a two-under 70 to post the early clubhouse target at four-under-par, but unfortunately it would be bettered by the in-form Robinson Thompson.
It has looked like the tournament could be on its way for a play-off as several players had their chance to win the tournament, with Joe Brooks falling away from a good position, while James Allan and Jeff Wright both came in at five-under-par having started early.
But Robinson Thompson, who came so close at the recent PDC Championship, rebounded from an ugly three-over front nine with birdies at the 16th and 18th for a one-over 73 to claim a two-shot win at seven-under-par.
“You have to do the little things to be able to get the results. It’s a lot like golf – if you do the right things, good things happen; you play good golf and you finish where you deserve,” said Robinson Thompson.
“The win proves that I can win, and believe me I knew I could win, but actually doing it is something completely different.”
Despite not picking up the win, it is still Grehan’s best finish on the satellite tour since the 2018 Motocaddy Masters and he will hope to use this as momentum for the remainder of the season.
Meanwhile, it was a disappointing final round for John-Ross Galbraith as the Whitehead man started the day three shots off the lead but fell back with four bogeys on his front nine.
The Northern Irishman would recover well with three birdies on his back nine to end the day with a two-over 74 to finish the week at three-under-par and in a tie for 10th which, although he will be disappointing with how it finished, it’s still a third top-10 finish of the season for him.
