Our superstar member, Matthew Fitzpatrick crowned a fabulous 2nd season on the European Tour with the biggest win of his professional career to date - The DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.

On a wet and miserable day here in Sheffield, members chose to stay off the course and were glued to Sky TV, to watch an epic final days play on the Earth Course in a sunny and hot Dubai. They were rewarded in what was a thrilling finish, with Matt holing a testing 5ft birdie putt on the last to seal an amazing win.

He was greeted and congratulated by many of his fellow tour pros as he left the final green, but also by one of his best pals and fellow HGC member Matt Civil, who's never camera shy when Matt is victorious on tour! His parents Russ and Sue were also on hand for emotional hugs.

A fabulous end, to a fabulous year. Well done to Matt from all of your fellow members here at Hallamshire.
