Golf: MACAULAY EDGED OUT BY GOYA.
The 20-year-old from Cordoba won the Madeira Islands Open BPI-Portugal in Porto Santo by one with a closing 73 and six under par total of 278.
Macaulay birdied the last six holes and eight of the last nine for an inward 28.
While equalling the course record with a 64 the 25-year-old thought he had left his run too late to trouble Goya. However, the South American then double-bogeyed the 492-yard par four 16th and found himself needing to par the final two holes to grab the first prize of just under pounds 107,000 plus the two-year Tour exemption.
Goya held his nerve, leaving Macaulay to take the pounds 71,309 runners-up cheque.
