Dredge King of the Mountains at Crans-sur-Sierre
Welshman Bradley Dredge won the Omega European Masters by a staggering eight strokes - the biggest margin of victory so far this season on The European Tour - after an imperious performance at Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club in the Swiss Alps. Dredge fired a final round of 67, four under par, for a 17 under par total of 267 with Germany’s Marcel Siem and Italy’s Francesco Molinari a distant second.
Dredge Hits the High Notes in Crans Montana
Bradley Dredge is showing a head for heights as three years after winning his first European Tour title in the mountains of Madeira, the Welshman leads the field in the Swiss Alps as he chases a second victory. A six under par 65 at Crans-sur-Sierre took Dredge two clear of playing partner Marcel Siem of Germany. England’s Oliver Wilson lies third on nine under par after a round of 67 with the defending champion and World Number Eight, Sergio Garcia, a further shot back.
Three Way Tie at Crans-sur-Sierre
Welshman Bradley Dredge, South African Andrew McLardy and Marcel Siem of Germany, three players looking for upturn in fortunes, moved into a share of the lead on seven under par 135 at the halfway stage of the Omega European Masters at Crans-sur-Sierre. McLardy’s round was the best of the leading trio and indeed the best of the week as he raced around in six under par 65, thanks primarily to his 23 putts, while Dredge and Siem both shot four under par 67s.
