Scrivener stays on a roll
by PGA of Australia
By Tony Webeck
West Australian Jason Scrivener will edge closer to breaking into the world’s top 100 after continuing his outstanding European Tour season at the Made in Himmerland tournament in Denmark.
Fresh from his best major championship result at the US PGA Championship where his tie for 23rd was the best finish by an Australian and elevated him to a career high world ranking of 111, Scrivener’s status will improve even further following his latest performance.
He fired a bogey-free round of five-under 66 in the final round to finish tied for third in Denmark and move up to seventh in the Race to Dubai rankings.
A six-under 65 in the final round is hopefully a precursor of a big European summer ahead for South Australian Wade Ormsby, while Jarryd Felton, Min Woo Lee and Dimi Papadatos all played the four rounds in Denmark.
In her first start of her second season on the Ladies European Tour, Sydney’s Stephanie Kyriacou gave no indication that she will suffer any second-year syndrome, finishing tied fourth at the Ladies Italian Open in Piemonte.
In the United States, Minjee Lee progressed to the quarter-finals of the LPGA Match-Play before falling to Ariya Jutanugarn 5&4 at Shadow Creek, while Stephen Leaney and Rod Pampling were both top-20 finishers at the Senior PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club.
Dylan Perry went into the third and final round of the Mizuno Open with a chance to play his way into a spot at Royal St George’s in July, but a final round of 71 dropped him to a tie for eighth.
It was a strong week for the Aussies on the Japan Golf Tour with Perry, Scott Strange and Brad Kennedy all finishing inside the top 15.
