Team Murdoch Crowned German Masters Champions 2016
The Team’s victory follows on from their undefeated run in Japan which saw them claim the Karuizawa International at the end of the last year, a semi final finish at the recent Perth Masters, which was televised by BBC Alba for the first time, before claiming the German Masters title they last won in 2013.
They claimed an early lead in the final with a two in the first end and singles were subsequently exchanged before Team Kim claimed a two in the fifth which levelled the score line. A steal in the seventh saw the Korean rink, who had heavily beaten world and European Champions Team Edin in their semi-final, head into the last end with a one shot advantage, but the Scots held their nerve to secure a two and the title.
Commenting straight after the final, Skip David Murdoch said, “Obviously we are delighted with another win on the tour with a strong field. Our form recently had been exemplary and again this weekend we showed great determination to continue this trend.
“With the Scottish Championship a few weeks away we feel we have great confidence in our play and we hope we carry this forward and achieve our goals for the rest of the season.”
British Curling Performance Director Graeme Thompson added, “They played very solidly for the entire tournament which proved to be a long weekend. There were very good performances all through the event and today both in the semi and final. They really impressed me and are showing good form leading in to the Scottish Championships.”
