Levy laments blowing it in the wind at BMW Masters
The Frenchman had led after the first round and again by four shots after his stunning 63 in benign conditions Saturday, but could not convert in near gale-force conditions and instead the $1,166,000 prize went to Germany's Marcel Siem. "I didn't miss a lot of shots," he told AFP. "Just some wrong shots in the wrong spots and some very bad putting with the wind." Levy, who was a staggering 22 under par for 54 holes having made only one bogey in three rounds, dropped shots at three of the first nine holes Sunday. He finally surrendered the lead at the 16th, only for the German to drop shots at the final two holes. It meant a three-man playoff at 16-under par with Siem, who carded a one-over 73, and England's Ross Fisher, who shot the outstanding round of the day with a five-under 67, having started the day 11 shots adrift of Levy. Siem chipped in sensationally for birdie at the first playoff hole as Levy and Fisher both missed lengthy birdie putts. Levy moved from 19th to seventh in the Race to Dubai and Fisher jumped significantly from 49th to 15th on the list.
