Bland wins 1st Euro in British Masters
BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) Richard Bland won his first European Tour event at the 478th attempt after beating Guido Migliozzi in a playoff for a dramatic finish at the British Masters on Saturday.
Bland became the oldest first-time winner in European Tour history at 48 when he parred the first extra hole at The Belfry after Migliozzi three-putted from long range.
"It's probably going to take a few days to sink in," an emotional Bland said. "It's what I've worked for for 20 years. I've had a few close calls and I assume someone up there was looking down on me quite favorably today.
