Oliver Fisher returns to the ever-popular Portugal Masters at the Dom Pedro Victoria – the course where he made Tour history just four years ago
– October 28, 2022
Back in 2018, Oliver Fisher became the first player in the 46 years of the DP World Tour to shoot a sub-60 score when he carded an eagle and 10 birdies on his way to a magical round of 59. It was the first time in nearly 700,000 rounds of golf on the DP World Tour that the feat had been achieved.
This year’s event promises to be equally spectacular with over 20 countries from all over the globe represented at the tournament. In addition to top golfers from Europe, the event’s renowned international character is reflected in the rich diversity of nations represented such as Australia, Chile, China, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand, and the USA.
“It’s always great to come back to Portugal. Out here at Dom Pedro Victoria it’s always a great venue that brings back good memories for me. It’s nice to come back, the way that the staff look after us for the week is always special”, said Fisher.
“Everyone feels relaxed here. The course gives you plenty of opportunities and it’s a fun week.”
“As you come round the back seven or eight holes it gives you plenty of water, plenty of drama and there’s opportunities for eagles.”
“It’s always great to come back to somewhere where you’ve got some good memories. I had previous good rounds before that round here [59 in 2018]. The 59 is definitely the standout round for me.”
The tournament’s enviable reputation for drama and fantastic golf, and €1.75 million in prize money ensures that many of the world’s golfing stars will again grace the fantastic Dom Pedro Golf Victoria Course in Vilamoura.
