Bradley enjoying the moment

Kinhult wins 1st European Tour title at British Masters.
Marcus Kinhult birdied the final two holes to claim his first European Tour title after a tense finish to the British Masters on Sunday. Kinhult shot a 2-under 70 and finished on 16-under 272 overall. His chance looked to have gone when he surrendered a one-shot lead with bogeys on the 15th and 16th, but the 22-year-old Swede recovered to finish a shot ahead of defending champion Eddie Pepperell (66), Matt Wallace (71) and Robert MacIntyre (68). Pepperell had set the clubhouse target on 15 under before MacIntyre produced a stunning eagle-birdie finish to join him at the top of the leaderboard.
