Hamilton reigns at British GP
AUSTRALIA’S Steven Bowditch ( pictured) has finished three shots behind tournament winner Danny Lee at The Greenbrier Classic.
The Novocastrian carded a final- round 67 for a 10- under- par total of 270, for a tie of 13th. Lee parred the second hole of a four- man playoff for his first PGA Tour victory.
The South Korean- born New Zealander earned $ 1.2 million and became the ninth first- time winner on the tour this season.
Lee, David Hearn, Kevin Kisner and Robert Streb were tied at 13under after four rounds on the Old White TPC course in West Virginia. RAIN soaked Silverstone and water – in the form of tears – then filled Lewis Hamilton’s eyes. The world champion ( pictured) battled to an emotional win on home soil for the third time yesterday as the inclement weather provided the conditions for a thrilling British Grand Prix — a riposte to some of the complaints about Formula One being boring this season. Hamilton overcame a bad start to hold off Nico Rosberg’s challenge in front of 140,000 fans for his fifth win of the season, to extend his championship lead over his Mercedes teammate to 17 points.
