WITB: Matt Wallace drives to victory in Denmark

Matt Wallace Witb Made In Denmark

Matt Wallace claimed his third European Tour title of the season following a dramatic four-man playoff at the Made in Denmark.

The Englishman birdied five of his last six holes to finish alongside Lee Westwood, Jonathan Thomson and Steven Brown on 19 under par. Two birdies on the subsequent playoff holes gave the 28-year-old his fourth career tour title. The win now has Wallace firmly in the conversation when it comes to Thomas Bjorn’s wildcard picks for the Ryder Cup.

“I've stepped up to the mark and I've shown him exactly what I'm about,” said Wallace.

He continued, “If he doesn't pick me then that's absolutely fine but if he does, he knows he's going to get exactly that in his team.”

Wallace’s game off the tee was sublime throughout the week. Using his Ping G400 LST driver and G400 fairways he finished fifth in the driving distance stats, averaging 309.8 yards off the tee and was also tenth in the driving accuracy stats.

Wallace also has in his bag Ping’s recently released Glide Forged wedges, which deliver a softer feel and a more compact shape than the Glide 2.0 offerings, as well as the all-new i210 irons.
