INTERESTING FACTS
The Omega European Masters has witnessed a number of scoring records in its distinguished history. In 1978 Spain’s José Maria Cañizares becames the first player to shoot 27 for nine holes. That has since been equalled on three ocassions by Joakim Haeggman (1997 Alfred Dunhill Cup) and Robert Lee twice (1985 Johnnie Walker Monte Carlo Open) and (1987 Portuguese Open). Baldovino Dassu was the first player to record the magic 60 on The European Tour in 1971, a feat equalled another nine times since. On his way to victory in 1996, Colin Montgomerie produced the lowest 36 holes in Tour history shooting of 124 (-18) in rounds three and four to beat Sam Torrance by four shots. Anders Forsbrand’s scoring in 1987 was even more remarkable when the Swede covered the last 54 holes in 192 (-24) – breaking tour Tour records for the lowest final 54 holes and the lowest final 54 in relation to par. Canadian Jerry Anderson etched his name into the record books with his wire-to-wire win in 1984. His 72 hole score of 27 under still stands as the lowest total to par gave him his maiden victory. One of the most spectacular finishes ever seen on The European Tour took place in 1992 when Jamie Spence started the final round ten behind. Courtesy of a last day 60 enabling him to defeat Anders Forsbarand in a play-off to equal the biggest final round comeback by a winner, first set by Neil Coles at the 1977 Tournament Players’ Championship.
