SERGIO GARCIA PASSES ON THE RED JACKET TO 2006 WINNER Welshman Bradley Dredge

Back

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 took a two-shot lead into the final round and was never troubled after birdieing the first three holes, dropping only one shot on the 16th by which time the title was beyond any doubt "I'm over the moon I have won again," he said fittingly after receiving congratulations from 1972 Apollo 17 mission commander Eugene Cernan, an ambassador for tournament sponsors Omega, and the last man to set foot on the moon. "The win has been a bit overdue and is a reward for my patience."
