Just seven days after his impressive PGA Championship debut in South California, Perth’s Jason Scrivener has finished in a share of 3rd place at the Made in Himmerland event in Farso in Denmark.
Scrivener finished as the leading Australian at last week’s PGA Championship when 23rd in his first attempt at the PGA Championship and in just his second major championship appearance.
There has been only one win in the professional career of Scrivener, that coming at the 2017 NSW Open but he has been once runner-up and three times third in European Tour events. The winning breakthrough appears to be close at hand.
Earlier this year Scrivener finished runner-up in Abu Dhabi behind Tyrrell Hatton and along with today’s finish he has now moved to 7th in the Race to Dubai as he continues his impressive rise in standings in world golf.
Scrivener is now likely to move just inside the top 100 in the world bettering his previous best of 111th set last Sunday at Kiawah Island.
Scrivener’s bogey free final round of 66 saw him finish just one shot from the second placed Guido Migliozzi but six shots from the winner, Bernd Wiesberger, who won his 8th European Tour title.
New Zealander Josh Geary finished 6th and just one behind Scrivener, Wade Ormsby 19th, Kim Felton and Min Woo Lee 52nd, and Dimi Papadatos 68th.
Geary recorded his best ever European Tour finish, bettering his previous best of 10th at the Belgian Knockout in 2018.
The European Tour now heads to Hamburg in Germany for the Porsche European Open.
