Steven Brown captures third Alps Tour crown in Egypt

Tags : 



England’s Steven Brown overtook the overnight leaders, Virto and Etchart, to win the Red Sea El Ain Bay Open by one shot thanks to solid flawless 66 6-under-par last round for -10 total.

The 26 year old player whose home club is Wentworth, is one of the 2013 Alps Tour graduates. He had two victories last year and one top 3 to finish at third place behind compatriot Jason Palmer and France’s Edouard Espana.

« I was relaxed playing here at the beginning of the week as I will play Challenge Tour this season. But today, when I saw I was only 3 behind, I started to feel a little pressure because I wanted to catch them up. Last time I won when I was not leading (France 2013) I finished my round more than 2 hours before the leaders. This time I was in the fourth group.

I did not want to know what was the score. On the last green, I could not avoid to see it but I am working with a psychologist since a few weeks and we decided I should stay focus to the things I can influence, my routine for example. I played really solid today and I holed good putts. A win is always nice even if Alps Tour is not my circuit anymore. It is a nice way to start a season.

Other WGM clients were Dave Corsby (12th) and Jack Senior (24th)

Baldwin and Sullivan finish tied 5th in Joberg Open

Tags : 

Matt Baldwin (68, 69, 68, 67) and Andy Sullivan (66, 72, 69, 65) both flew up the leaderboard on Sunday to finish tied 5th in the 2014 Joberg Open in South Africa.

Both players have made a great start to the 2014 season and are consistently challenging up at the business end of tournaments on the European Tour.

They were no doubt both buoyed by Liverpool FC’s win against Arsenal FC yesterday 🙂
