Winner takes it all

How Bernd Ritthammer kept his head when all around him - including your livebloggers - were losing theirs was truly remarkable.

Here's the report of his NBO Golf Classic Grand Final triumph

Hammer seals hat-trick at Grand Final

Bernd Ritthammer sealed a third victory of the year on a day of high drama at the European Challenge Tour’s season finale, the NBO Golf Classic Grand Final, at Al Mouj Golf.


Sensational Smith 

What a year it has been for Jordan Smith. He came to the 2016 Road to Oman as the Order of Merit winner on the satellite EuroPro Tour, and was able to continue his winning run in Egypt at the start of the season. The Englishman has spent the majority of the season occupying top spot, but had to work hard to beat the likes of the Alexander Knappe, Ryan Fox and Bernd Ritthammer to the summit of the Rankings.

His thoughts after finishing: "It hasn't quite sunk in yet, but I am sure when it is all announced and I get the trophy in my hands it will hit home.

"I didn't play my best this week but I just went out there to enjoy it. I had my mum, my coach and my auntie all here supporting me this week, and it has been great to be able to have them here.

"Walking off the last green it was emotional, mainly from my Mum, and it was relly nice to be able to have her here when I finished."




Unbelievable scenes

While we were busy crowning Jordan Smith as the Road to Oman winner, Jens Dantorp picked up another shot - he's now tied leader with Bernd Ritthammer on 21 under par and provisionally inside the top 16!
