First European Tour Title For Fisher

Englishman returns to form at Czech Open

Englishman Oliver Fisher won the Czech Open by 2 strokes

Englishman Oliver Fisher took his first European Tour title with a two-stroke victory at the Czech Open with a final round 69 to finish 13-under par.

The 22-year old finished clear of Mikael Lundberg of Sweden to win his first title, beating his previous best finish on the Tour having come second in two tournaments previously. Fisher came into the event in 224th on The Race to Dubai and had already missed 20 of 21 cuts this season, making the victory even more impressive with a timely return to form.

Fisher birdied the 16th and 17th to pull away from Lundberg – who also shot 69 in the final round – and parred the first six holes before a flurry of birdies came at 7, 8 and 9 to reach 13-under. He managed to salvage par at the 10th having fired his second shot against a telegraph pole leaving Lundberg in the lead at the halfway stage. Fisher then bogeyed the 11th as Lundberg pulled out a lead, but fought back to take a lead he was never going to relinquish again.

The Englishman confessed to being “relieved” to have won the tournament after the disappointing year he’s had, but said “to have finally won it feels like I’m there, I’ve proven to myself I can win.”

The biggest loser of the weekend was Steven O’Hara, who lead overnight, but he slipped into a four-way tie for fifth with a 75, bogeying the final three holes.
