McGowan reigns in Spain

GOLF: England&rsquo;s Ross McGowan landed his first European Tour title yesterday at the Madrid Masters. <br /><br />The 27-year-old recovered from a terrible start to his final round to card a 71, finishing on 25 under par, three shots ahead of Finland&rsquo;s Mikko Ilonen. <br /><br />&ldquo;It&rsquo;s lovely to come away with the trophy,&rdquo; he said. &ldquo;It means a lot to win &ndash; that&rsquo;s another goal out of the way and hopefully from here I can progress and move on to bigger things.&rdquo;
