Matteo Manassero Becomes Youngest to Win PGA BMW Championship

It was the end of the day on Sunday at the Wentworth Club in Surrey, England. Simon Kahn, Marc Warren, and Matteo Manassero were all tied after England’s own Lee Westwood turned a two-hole lead into ninth place. The stakes were high, as the winner automatically wins qualification into the U.S. Open next month. And not only was Manassero trying to avenge the past, after suffering his own collapse during the same tournament two years ago; he was also trying to make history. In the end, he did.

Going into the playoff round all were tied at 10-under-278. But when Marc Warren of Scotland was out after the first playoff hole, it left just Kahn and Manassero still on the course. Neither was going to give in easily, and it took until the fourth playoff hole for Manassero to finally beat out Kahn, and win his fourth European Tour title. He also avoids playing the U.S. Open qualifying round at Walton Heath course on Monday.

Along with the win, Manassero also becomes the youngest player in history to win the PGA BMW Championship, but just by a matter of days. Manassero goes down in the record books as being 20 years and 37 days old; while Bernard Gallacher of Scotland, 20 years and 97 days old, once held the title of the youngest winner in the BMW Championship.
