Ian Woosnam’s Berenberg Bank Masters success

Shropshire golfing legend Ian W has ended a two-year-wait for a tournament victory.

Oswestry's Woosnam produced a swashbuckling performance to storm to victory in the Berenberg Bank Masters on the European Senior Tour.

Two shots off the pace at the start of yesterday’s final round, the Welshman carded a sensational 66 at Cologne Golf and Land Club in Germany to cruise through the field and bank his fourth Senior Tour title with a nine under par total of 207.

That was two shots clear of the chasing pack which included Englishmen Barry Lane and Mark James.

"I played really, really well and I am delighted," said Woosnam for whom the title was his first Senior Tour win in over two years since he claimed the 2009 Irish Seniors Open at Ballybunion.

"I didn’t make many mistakes which was crucial and as a result I didn’t put myself under too much pressure."

Woosnam moved up to third in the order of merit after pocketing the 60,000 Euros first prize.

"I have to say I have been playing pretty well for a long time now but the last two couple of golf courses we have played didn’t really suit me because they were a bit hard and bouncy," added the 53-year-old.

"However, as soon as I saw this course I knew it was right up my street and I knew if I could drive the ball a little bit better than I had been of late then I knew I had a chance. I managed to do that and you saw the outcome."
