Slattery named Hilton European Tour Golfer of the Month for September

Lee Slattery has been named the Hilton European Tour Golfer of the Month for September after winning the M2M Russian Open and finishing runner-up in the KLM Open in consecutive weeks.
The Englishman lost his European Tour card in agonising fashion at the end of the 2014 season when he finished one spot outside the top 110, but his heartache turned to joy when he finished one shot clear of Tano Goya for an emotional victory at Skolkovo Golf Club, in Moscow.
It was the 37 year old’s second European Tour title, and his first since the 2011 Bankia Madrid Masters – a wait of three years and 332 days – and he almost made it two in as many weeks when, buoyed by his Russian triumph, he pushed Belgian Thomas Pieters all the way in The Netherlands.
Bidding to become the first Englishman since Lee Westwood in 1999 to win consecutive European Tour events, Slattery’s third round of 63 in the KLM Open moved him firmly into contention at Kennemer Golf and Country Club. However, he missed a four foot par putt on the 72nd hole to make it into a play-off with Pieters, and instead had to settle for a share of second place alongside Spaniard Eduardo de la Riva.
