St. Andrews Links Trophy: Mathews sets record

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (June 10, 2007)-- Wales internationalist Llewellyn Matthews is the new St Andrews Links Trophy holder after he completed a final round 67 for a total of 273, 15-under par.

"I've always loved St Andrews, the courses were fantastic," said Mathews after breaking the tournament record by two shots.

It was the first time in half a dozen attempts that he has made the cut and his performance in Walker Cup year was sensational. A birdie-3 at the eighteenth was a fitting way to close out the tournament.

Llewllyn also won the Ian Forbes Memorial Trophy for leading at halfway.

Scott Arnold of Australia was second on 276 with France's Alexandre Kaleka third on 277. World number one Jamie Moul was a stroke further back
