WILTSHIRE’S Laurie Canter saw his wait for a maiden professional tournament victory go on after squandering a three-shot lead at last week’s Andalucia Masters at Real Club Valderrama.

The Cumberwell Park member had put together a sublime first three days to leave himself at seven under par going into Sunday’s final round.

However, Canter had a miserable final round with a double-bogey on the par-three sixth before further dropped shots on the seventh, 12th, 16th and 17th holes ended up leaving the Wiltshire golfer in a tie for fourth.

Meanwhile, fellow Englishman Matt Fitzpatrick took victory just weeks after being a part of the unsuccessful Team Europe side who were blown away at the Ryder Cup.

Competing in his first event after finishing pointless at the Ryder Cup, Fitzpatrick carded a final round of 69, picking up shots on the 16th and 17th holes.

Those gains came just as Sweden’s Sebastian Soderberg – who had moved into a two-shot lead in part thanks to an eagle on the par-five fourth – double-bogeyed the 17th, dropping into a share of second with Lee Min-Woo.
