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 result in a Major championship at the US PGA Championship where his tie for 23rd was the best finish by an Australian and elevated him to a career-high of 111 in the Official World Golf Rankings, Scrivener’s status will improve even further following his latest performance.

He fired a bogey-free round of 5-under 66 in the final round to finish tied for third in Denmark and move up to seventh in the Race to Dubai rankings, his ascension into the top echelon of world golf continuing on its upward trend.

Four sub-70 rounds and a tie for sixth is also a significant result for Kiwi Josh Geary in Denmark who moved up 82 spots in the Race to Dubai rankings.

That will assist Geary in continuing to get starts as the European Tour season heats up and give him a greater opportunity to secure full status on tour for the 2022 season and beyond.

A 6-under 65 in the final round is hopefully a precursor of a big European summer ahead for 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 for fourth at the Ladies Italian Open in Piemonte.

In the US Minjee Lee progressed to the quarter-finals of the Bank of Hope LPGA Match-Play before falling to Ariya Jutanugarn at Shadow Creek 5&4 while Stephen Leaney and Rod Pampling were both top-20 finishers at the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club.

Dylan Perry went into the third and final round of the Gate Way to The Open 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 saw him fall into a tie for eighth.

It was a strong week for the Aussies on the Japan Golf Tour with Perry, Scott Strange, Brad Kennedy and Kiwi Michael Hendry all finishing inside the top-15.
