AUDEMARS PIGUET AMBASSADOR PAUL DUNNE WINS HIS FIRST EUROPEAN TOUR TITLE AT THE BRITISH MASTERS
Paul Dunne won his first European Tour Title at the British Masters at Close House (UK) on Sunday, October 1st. Paul shot an impressive final round of 61 with an overall score of 20 under par. He resisted Rory McIlroy’s come back and finished with a 3 shot lead.
The Irish golfer played an exceptional last round scoring an Eagle on the par-5 of the sixth hole and another 7 birdies, two of which were on the 17th and 18th holes to finish in style.
The 24 year-old first made the headlines at the 2015 British Open Championship where he was tied for the lead after three rounds – a first for an amateur golfer since 1927. For the past two years, Paul Dunne had been showing some good form and came close to victory on several occasions. Earlier this year in Morocco, he had lost out to Italian Edoardo Molinari at the first hole of a sudden death playoff.
Dunne commented: “I’ve come close before so it’s nice to get the demon off my back. The highlight of my round was the put I made on the 17th to make a birdie… once I holed that, I knew it was pretty much mine.”
Paul Dunne’s first victory proves his hard work and commitment to the game, both on and off the golf course. His passion allows him to embody Audemars Piguet’s brand philosophy “To break the rules, you must first master them”. A key player of the Audemars Piguet golf ambassadors Dream Team, he is in good company alongside Ben An, Darren Clarke, Branden Grace, Emiliano Grillo, Miguel Ángel Jiménez, Andrew Johnston, Romain Langasque, Ian Poulter, Xander Schauffele, Henrik Stenson, Vijay Singh, Andy Sullivan, Peter Uihlein, Lee Westwood, Bernd Wiesberger and Danny Willett.
