Englishman ends 9 year wait for Tour title

David Lynn ended a 9 year drought by winning the Portugal Masters for only his second European Tour title on Sunday.

The Englishman finished just a shot ahead of Justin Walters  of South Africa, with a final round 63 to give him a first European Tour title since the KLM Open in 2004.

"It's emotional," said Lynn.

"To go nine years without a victory and come close so many times you start to question whether you can do it again.

"It feels fantastic. This one's special as it's been so long since a win and it's just a week before my 40th birthday.

"To get another win before I turn 40 is an early birthday present."

Lynn takes home with a winner's cheque for £282,905 and bump up the rankings from No52 into the Top 50 at spot number 34.

The 39-year-old's victory was all the sweeter in that he started the fourth round in 16th place and six shots off the pace. A run of nine birdies put him in contention, although he had to endure a long wait before knowing the victory was secure.

"I was half-heartedly watching on TV," he said. "You don't wish bad on other golfers out there but you do start to feel a bit selfish, hoping their putts don't go in.

"But I've had to bide my time, and now I've finally got my hands on a trophy again."
