Grant Forrest wins Hero Open to win his first European tour


Scotland’s Grant Forrest delivered a stunning finish to seal his first European Tour title at the Scottish Championships on Sunday.

Forrest defends England’s fierce challenge James Morrison to become the first home winner in Scotland since Paul Lawrie in 2012.

The 28-year-old made birdies in the final two holes at Fairmont St Andrews to complete the tournament with 24 under-runs and secure the title with one stroke after a final round of 66.

“There are so many emotions,” Forrest said. “To do it in front of everyone who came to support me – the last year and a half has been a real challenge up and down, but I’m just delighted.

“We’ve been through a lot as a family and to do it here, that’s what I’ve always dreamed of winning at the European Tour.

Morrison finishes second with a lock of 63, followed by Spain’s Santiago Tarrio in the third. Scotland’s David Law and Calum hill shared fourth place, while American Jaag Hanna and Matthew Jordan was tied for sixth place.
