RICHARD Bland endured a disappointing end to his Nordea Masters campaign.

The Stoneham pro dropped four shots in his final round in Sweden to slip back into a tie for 22nd place.

Bland had started the day in fourth, but struggled to get anything going at Bro Hof Slott Golf Club.

A bogey at the second got the round off to a bad start, but a sublime tee shot at the par-three fourth hole set up an easy birdie putt and saw him get back to 11-under for the tournament.

After a string of pars, Bland then dropped a shot at 14, before suffering a costly triple bogey at the par-three 17th.

World number three Lee Westwood won the tournament, finishing five clear of the field.

RIchard, Richard, Richard. You played 71 good holes of golf this week - Make sure it's 72 next week in St Omer and all will be forgotten.
