Fowler close on European Seniors Tour
BY European Tour | 02 Jul 2012
Tim Thelen secured his maiden Senior Tour victory in the most thrilling fashion with a final round that included an albatross and a rampaging finish to hold of the challenges of some of the senior game’s biggest names at the Berenberg Bank Masters.
With 2011 Senior Tour Numbers One and Two Peter Fowler and Barry Lane, Mark Mouland and the legendary Bernhard Langer piling on the back nine pressure, Thelen produced three birdies in his closing four holes to card a four under par 68 and slam the door closed on his first victory to secure the €60,000 first prize at the Golfclub Wörthsee in Munich.
“I can’t actually put it into words what this means to me,” said Thelen after being presented with the Berenberg Masters trophy by tournament Ambassador Gary Player.
“To beat these guys – real legends of the game – makes it so special to win here. It feels amazing and I actually can’t believe it right now.
“Guys like Bernhard Langer, Barry Lane, Peter Fowler and Mark Mouland are real legends of the game. When you look at what they have done, what they have won around the world it really puts in into perspective.
“I have won once in my career so I can’t really hold myself up against those guys, but it feel pretty good right now to have come out on top here today.”
